Kitchen Connection allows lay and professional cooks to host or participate in live, online, and interactive cooking classes that support the UN Sustainable Development Goal 2: Zero Hunger.
Kitchen Connection focuses on issues related to food inequity and food insecurity through our online and offline events, by allowing the individuals to not only share recipes but also a part of themselves and their culture through their recipes, incorporating stories and accounts of some of the agricultural threats to their food as a result of conflict and climate change.
We operate on two pillars:
1. Live in a Hunger-Free World: The hosts of the classes (connections) can be paid, or choose to donate some or all of the funds from the class to the partner charities, learn about ways to reduce food waste, and overall through their food practices,support the UN Sustainable Development Goal #2: Zero Hunger, promoting our core value: “I’m Eating — You’re Eating — And Because We’re Eating Together, Someone Else is Eating, Too”
2. Promote “Gastrodiplomacy” : In the overarching climate of cultural misunderstandings and misrepresentations, Kitchen Connection is combating this by connecting people to learn about each other, from each other, through an online, interactive cooking experience that opens up intercultural dialogue.
