Collective kitchens help

Cooking collectively not only builds community bonds but it can improve budgeting and nutrition for the families involved.

Nutrition graduate student Rachel Engler-Stringer has found in her research that collective kitchens, where individuals combine their resources to prepare large quantities of healthy food for their families, also produce positive changes in self-esteem and self-confidence among participants who are often part of lower-income or at-risk communities.

Her study involved participants living and cooking in Montreal, Toronto and Saskatoon.
