A Community Kitchen involves a group of like-minded people meeting regularly to socialise and cook before enjoying delicious, affordable and nutritious meals together. Many kitchens buy and cook in bulk so many meals can be produced at low cost.
Participants can also take meals home to enjoy on subsequent days. (Click LINK to see participating kitchens in the Frankston area).
