My Grandmother’s Kitchen is an inter-generational community kitchen program that brings together women of all ages and backgrounds who are united by their love of food and their desire to learn how to cook healthy, budget-friendly meals. gnocchi-picture

Women come into our kitchen to plan, prepare and share meals, acquire and exchange food skills, and build connections. With this project we seek to address two prevalent issues in our area that impact health and well-being: food security and social inclusion. The program hosts classes on topics such as: vegan eating, fermentation, canning and drying foods, container gardening and composting, cooking with affordable, healthy lentils or tofu, and many more – all of which support self-sufficiency and healthy eating.

Each spring the Women’s Centre starts planning its garden and carries on until late fall, when we harvest the vegetables, herbs, and fruit in the garden. All women are invited to participate to volunteer, learn, contribute, teach and offer support to each other.

Spending time assisting in the garden offers the following opportunities:

  • Learning how to cultivate, plant, tend and harvest crops
  • Providing nutritious food to families
  • Networking with other women
