Latest Projects
We launched The Teaching Kitchen at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House in 2015 to expand the impact of our food service innovations and to address the intense interest in our farm-to-institution food program and requests for assistance. The Teaching Kitchen is a year-long program designed to help organizations implement change at their own pace. We begin with a day-long food business course and hands-on training, followed by technical assistance, guidance in setting and meeting individualized goals, professional development workshops, recipe and information sharing and more. To date, The Teaching Kitchen has trained 111 New York City nonprofit programs serving almost 10 million meals annually. In the year ahead, we will scale the program to train 50 nonprofits annually
Interesting Fact
We order over 1,000 bushels of New York State apples each year.
