Providence Milwaukie Community Teaching Kitchen
Our teaching kitchen works to create a healthier community through one-on-one outpatient nutrition counseling, regular screening for food insecurity, and access to a navigator for individualized resources.
Our family market provides a wide variety of dry, fresh and frozen foods to help families who are facing hunger.
Hands-on cooking classes are provided by our chef leader and nutrition lessons by our registered dietitian. Patients and community members learn essential preparation and cooking skills as well as evidenced-based nutrition information. By providing food and the skills to use it, we are able to meet the needs of our patients and community in a more effective way.
Learn how one patient used the “cooking matters” classes to learn and incorporate new skills, so that her children would not repeat the same poor eating habits that she once had.
The Community Teaching Kitchen is available for groups from within Providence Health & Services and the community. A physician referral is not necessary for these services.
