Service Project: Kindred Kitchen

Women Repair the World will meet in the Northeast Minneapolis commercial kitchen at Appetite for Change and spend about an hour cooking a full meal for the summer youth training and opportunity program participants. Participants are teens aged 14-17 who run the west broadway farmers market, including growing the food and facilitate community cook workshops. We’ll also spend time learning about Appetite for Change and Kindred Kitchen as well as participating in a group dialogue about a key issue.
