Community Kitchens

Community cooking at The Stop brings people together to learn, cook, and share nutritious, culturally-diverse, and inexpensive meals. We offer a range of cooking groups, all designed to build food skills, reduce social isolation, and increase access to healthy food, while connecting people to other resources, including health, legal, and settlement services.

Men’s Cooking Group

The Men’s Cooking Group is a community kitchen that provides a warm, inclusive space where men of all ages and skill levels can connect with food and each other. Each week, group members prepare a meal and learn about knife skills, kitchen safety, meat-handling, budgeting, and planning healthy meals.

Hours: 1884 Davenport Road; Mondays; 2:30PM to 5:30PM.
