Would you be interested in joining a Community Kitchen?
Langwarrin Community Centre has started up a Community Kitchen! We may start another group in coming months so let us know if you're interested.
Community Kitchens involve a small group of people coming together on a regular basis to plan for, prepare and cook a healthy and affordable meal.
They are often held in community facilities with a kitchen - such as a school, church or community centre. After preparing and cooking the meal together, participants of Community Kitchens then sit down and share the meal, or if there is any leftover food cooked in the Kitchen this can be taken home and shared amongst families.
Participants can run the group together, and all be involved in planning, organising, cooking and most importantly eating! All participants can have an equal say in how the Kitchen operates. There is also usually 1-2 ‘group leaders’, also participants, who are there to help the group run smoothly.
You can view the following link for more information:http://communitykitchens.org.au/
