The goal of Conscious Kitchen is to address food equity, education, and access by shifting the paradigm around school food service, while cultivating a local, ecological food system, and building nutrition literacy into school meals.
Through a collaborative, replicable approach, CK partners with schools to break the cycle of packaged, overly processed food, transitioning to chef-prepared, scratch-cooked meals created in on-site school zero-waste kitchens, based on five foundational attributes: fresh, local, organic, seasonal and non-GMO. Once built, schools own and operate their Conscious Kitchens.
