Positive Community Kitchen’s mission is to inspire wellness through food. Within our small but mighty kitchen, we create love, health and community. Every week, local high school students and adult volunteers join together to cook organic, nourishing meals to be served free of charge for those in our community with life-threatening illnesses. Our hope is to educate those with illness about the advantages of eating a healthy diet, especially while undergoing treatment. While it’s important to serve those who are already ill, PCK believes in prevention of disease through education for our youth.
