While we begin with the science of which food we should eat more of and which we should eat less of, we then translate nutrition science with the best chef educators at The Culinary Institute of America.

The goal of Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives
is to transform attendees into advocates and role models
for healthy food and lifestyle choices.

About The Teaching Kitchen Collaborative

The Teaching Kitchen Collaborative evolved out of the Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives conference. Launched in 2016, the Teaching Kitchen Collaborative (TKC) is an invitational network of thought leading organizations using teaching kitchen facilities as catalysts of enhanced personal and public health across medical, corporate, school, and community settings. The Teaching Kitchen Collaborative’s mission is to enable early adopters to learn about each other’s facilities and educational programs, to develop best practices for reproducing and scaling various models and programs, and to explore the creation of a research network to assess the clinical, behavioral, and financial impact of recommended best practices.
