Cooking classesRob Vander Giessen-Reitsma

Whether it’s growing, cooking, eating or cleaning up the dishes, food has tremendous power to bring people together.  A commercial kitchen at the Huss Project will extend the work of Triple Ripple Community Gardens into food preparation and service.  Cooking classes on a variety of topics will provide opportunities for participants to learn professional skills and develop their personal resourcefulness for healthy eating and simple living on a budget.  A commercial kitchen also has the potential to serve as a resource for special events on the site and to grow entrepreneurial possibilities for those who want to prepare food for sale.  Huss Project Pickles?  You bet!  For a local example of a collaborative kitchen generating delicious possibilities, check out the Can-Do Kitchen organized by Fair Food Matters in Kalamazoo.  If Kalamazoo Can-Do, so can Three Rivers!
