Teaching Kitchen


The primary purpose of the Health Unit Teaching Kitchen is to provide space for food literacy and food safety programming geared to priority populations and community groups.

The Health Unit’s accessible “Teaching Kitchen” is attached to a large classroom that can hold 54 people with row seating (or 32 people, with tables and chairs). The kitchen is equipped with a commercial dishwasher, two stove tops, two wall ovens, a handwashing sink as well as a three compartment sink. There is the option to close the partition between the teaching kitchen and the classroom. The kitchen also features a video camera and screen to project teaching moments for all to see.

The kitchen is equipped with kitchen tools and equipment as well as some basic food supplies. All of these details are available in the Teaching Kitchen User Guide.
