The Shelbourne Community Kitchen is a community resource for individuals and families living on a low income, who have difficulty accessing sufficient nutritious food on a consistent basis—in other words, they are experiencing food insecurity. We assist by providing small-group cooking, pantry, and gardening programs, which encourage community building, while participants acquire food skills and learn to access nutritious food affordably.

Our Vision is to have a food secure community

Our Mission is to assist people living on a low income in increasing their food security through learning and working together in a supportive community

We strive to achieve our Vision and Mission by:

  • working with others to prepare and share nutritious meals together;
  • providing access to nutritious food;
  • developing gardens where people work together to grow food for themselves and others;
  • offering other community, spiritual and social resources.
