Why a Teaching Kitchen?
The CHCA Teaching Kitchen perfectly blends entrepreneurship with the farm-to-school emphasis. It serves a dual purpose: emphasizing culinary skills and nutritional wellbeing for a healthy life and also providing an opportunity for students to run the kitchen as a business. Gr 9-12 students interact with the Teaching Kitchen formally through elective courses or as a business internship, while students in PK-Gr 8 have more informal Teaching Kitchen experiences.
