The Community Kitchen

School of Food’s Community Kitchen provides educational programming through cooking classes, demos, and other community events at low or no cost to the community.

As a Humanim Social Enterprise, we are committed to creating jobs for economically rising people and empowering people through food. We do this through our Community Kitchen, culinary job training for community members, and by growing Baltimore’s local food economy through business training and technical assistance for local food and beverage entrepreneurs.



Community Kitchen: Pantry Cooking with the Franciscan Center

As part of our Community Kitchen programming, we are partnering with the Franciscan Center of Baltimore to provide workshops on how to cook – using fresh produce and dry goods from the Franciscan Center’s community kitchen. Our goal is to teach families how to cook for themselves and make healthy, satisfying meals on a budget.

The Franciscan Center provides social services for community members, including food and clothing, emergency health services counseling and technology training to help clients become as self-sufficient as possible.

Basic Kitchen Skills

We are excited to offer our Basic Kitchen Skills curriculum to the community on a sliding scale (pay what you can) basis! From knife skills to butchery and sauces, learn everything you need to know to rock your home kitchen!
