Mapleton Teaching Kitchen

The Mapleton Teaching Kitchen offers programs and services to help enhance the food security of families and individuals living with limited financial resources in the Metro Moncton area:

lots of fresh food

A Teaching Kitchen is a cooking based nutrition education program offered to community groups. The program focuses on developing practical cooking skills and healthy eating practices with a hands-on approach. Sessions cover topics such as food safety, basic nutrition and Canada’s Food Guide, as well as menu planning and food budgeting tips.

Fresh For Less provides lower income families and individuals affordable access to fresh fruit and vegetables each month. Members pay an initial registration fee of $5.00 and then a monthly fee of $15.00 to receive a box filled with fresh produce.

Collective Kitchens allow a group of participants the opportunity to plan and prepare low cost meals together at a subsidized cost. Groups meet once a month within the community or at Headstart and together prepare two to three recipes that are portioned for them to take home and freeze.

Fun in the Kitchen is a children’s summer camp version of our Teaching Kitchen. Children learn the importance of healthy eating and active living and develop confidence in their practical cooking skills. This is a week full of learning in a fun and interactive environment.
