Community Kitchen

Through Community Kitchens, participants learn how to cook nutritious meals on a budget at the Coleman Community Center!

Local chefs volunteer their time to conduct the classes for the South Nashville neighborhood. The first 25 participants take home a bag full of ingredients to prepare the meals at home. Classes are free of charge and fill up fast!

The event is sponsored by Metro Parks, United Way of Middle Tennessee, Bridges, CASTLES and the South Nashville Family Resource Center.

For more information or if you would like to help sponsor or lead a Community Kitchen, e-mail Leslie Hayes, :

Community Kitchens will resume in August 2013.  Check back soon for updates!
