Community Kitchens Northwest
Community Kitchens Northwest (CKNW) is a Tilth Alliance program that is reviving a culture of scratch cooking and healthy eating by bringing people together to cook and share meals.
We host community dinners, lead school and after-school cooking clubs, support a network of community kitchen programs and offer trainings. Our goal is to empower people with the tools they need to eat well every day -- by sharing cooking skills, nutrition knowledge and food traditions. Learn more...

School and After-School Cooking Clubs
Tilth Alliance offers cooking clubs at Rainier Beach High School, Cleveland High School and Interagency Academy. By preparing food with friends, students gain valuable life skills that will lead them towards a path of well-being. Students work together to prepare a meal that is shared by everyone. This enables them to learn teamwork and communication, gain a sense of belonging and cultural appreciation and contribute to the community at large. Learn more...
Community Kitchens Northwest offers trainings to school and childcare cooks, teaching how to use fresh seasonal produce and whole foods as the basis for healthy delicious meals and snacks. We also offer kitchen leader trainings for community members and organizations that want to set up community kitchens in their own neighborhoods. Learn more...
