Our primary mission activity is culinary training and job placement services for adults experiencing barriers to employment.
Community Kitchen Pittsburgh was launched in July 2013 with the strong support of the local funding community. We launched in response to an identified need to increase access to high quality, healthy food in institutional settings (such as schools); and a need for pathways to living wage jobs; and a belief that these goals could be closely integrated through our regional food system.
