    Please take the time to read an excellent article written by Ms. Farrah Duffany in the Meriden Record Journal Newspaper on January 21, 2015. Featuring one of our student, Alex Woodworth. My City Kitchen is not just a little cooking program, our students come from all walks of life. By participating in our cooking program we allow our students to express themselves through cooking, which builds their confidence, respect, self-esteem and independence.

    On behalf of My City Kitchen Board Of Directors we say “CONGRATULATIONS Alex we are very proud of you, your story is an inspiration to many, keep on shining bright.”

    MCK Students featured in the Meriden Record Journal on January 14, 2015.

    MERIDEN — Aromas of fresh chopped garlic, sautéed onions and ground beef filled the room at My City Kitchen as four teenagers took over the stoves to learn how to cook.

    “We’re going to make chili,” said Kashia Cave, owner of My City Kitchen in Meriden. “Why? Because, it’s cold outside.”

    My City Kitchen Board of Directors would like to thank the Meriden Foundation for their generous support; MCK was awarded a grant to expand our program to reach teenage mothers;
    “Healthy Mom=Healthy Baby”.

    We are very grateful and humble for their support. A sincere THANK YOU to the Foundation and Committee members for this amazing opportunity to provide teen parents with nutrition education. Special thanks to our student, and teen parent Tiera Burch for voicing her concerns, which led us to take action in this area.

    We’ll be launching this 12 weeks healthy cooking program in mid January, teaching teen mothers and fathers how to provide healthy meals for themselves and their babies.
