Kitchen Connection - Private Partnerships
Public-private partnerships are essential to fostering innovation in health and addressing problems that neither party could tackle effectively on its own. The strength in forming these partnerships is seen as a way to contribute to overall well-defined objectives, especially in developing countries, and may take on several forms to reach the targeted goal. Kitchen Connection has been fortunate enough to form several of these partnerships with multiple agencies across the globe.
Whole Foods Market
The mission of Whole Foods to nourish people and the planet is certainly in line with Kitchen Connection’s vision of an integrative, sustainable world. Whole Foods was Kitchen Connection’s very first partner and sponsor for the launch event, continuing to be one of its strongest collaborators through the organization and through the support of its employees. Since then, this partnership has been maintained with the shared goal of improving the lives of communities around the globe through food and the power of the culinary arts with collaborative in person and online events, from teaching children about nutritious eating to learning the true properties of olive oil and how to integrate it into a comprehensive cooking lifestyle.
