Why a Teaching Kitchen? 

CHCA teaching kitchen Logo

Under the leadership of a full time, on site executive chef, the CHCA Teaching Kitchen perfectly blends entrepreneurship with the farm-to-school emphasis. It serves a dual purpose: provide an opportunity for students to run the kitchen as a business and also emphasize culinary skills and nutritional wellbeing for a healthy life. Gr 9-12 students interact with the Teaching Kitchen formally through elective courses or as a business internship, while students in Gr K-8  have more informal Teaching Kitchen experiences.
