The Teen Kitchen Project is a nonprofit organization that brings young people into the kitchen to learn to cook delicious and nourishing food. The meals they prepare are delivered free of charge to individuals and families who are in crisis due to a life-threatening illness like cancer. We serve families in Santa Cruz County, California.
The teens gain skills in cooking healthy food, learn about the impact of their food choices, and are offered an opportunity to build connections through community service.
The Teen Kitchen Project operates on Tuesday afternoons, between 3:00 PM and 7:30 PM out of a commercial kitchen in Soquel, California. We are supported through donations from the community.
We are always in need of financial support to cover our operating costs, in addition to the weekly expenses of supplies and ingredients. You may make a cash contribution in any amount – and below are guidelines for how much it costs in total to feed a family for:
- 1 week: $30
- 1 month: $130
- 3 months: $400
If you would like to make a cash contribution, please use the “Donate Now” button, mail a check to PO Box 1853, Soquel, CA 95072, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
