Group Name: Scadding Court Community Centre – Community Kitchen
Description: Founded in March 1975, Scadding Court Community Centre is located at the corner of Dundas and Bathurst streets and adjacent to the Atkinson Cooperative Housing Complex (formerly Alexandra Park social housing). Our programs target under-serviced, culturally diverse groups such as low-income families, at-risk children and youth, newcomers, people living with disabilities, seniors and the un/underemployed. Between 500 and 600 people visit the Centre each day to participate in programs and services, or just to socialize.
One component of the Food for Thought initiative is a community kitchen style program that is open to community members to shop, cook and share food together in a comfortable and educational setting. Participants of the program learn recipes from all over the world, learn nutritional components of foods, and discover healthy and affordable shopping alternatives. Members will also take home some of the food produced in the class. The program also includes topics such as food handling, kitchen safety, and cooking techniques. The participants are also involved with the Urban Agriculture Program where organic produce is grown in the greenhouse and the community garden for use in the community kitchen.
