Charity Event

This May, Kitchen Possible is partnering with Chicago restaurants to fund their summer programming. Kitchen Possible is a Chicago-based non-profit that builds empowered mindsets in underserved kids through cooking. As they learn to cook, kids in the program develop confidence, a sense of control, and a make-it-happen attitude that sets them up for success outside of the kitchen. Kitchen Possible offers programming in Pilsen, East Garfield Park, and are working to bring programming to the South Side this summer.  

Next month, 22 Chicago restaurants will be helping to fund Kitchen Possible's summer programming via select menu items. A portion of proceeds from each of the following dishes will benefit Kitchen Possible all month long.

Research shows that kids in underserved communities are less likely to believe that they are in control of what happens to them in their lives. This mindset is not one that sets them up for success as they grow. Kitchen Possible is more than an opportunity for kids to learn to make healthy food. It’s a chance for them to learn to set goals, follow a plan, persevere when things get tough, and ultimately taste the results of their hard work.
