After 20 years without a solid working space, the Philabundance Community Kitchen (PCK) has finally found a home at 2224 N. 10th Street in North Philadelphia just in time for our 20th anniversary. Our new home will allow us to work with more students and increase the length of the training program. The facility also boasts a community space to share with our neighbors and a spacious kitchen to produce more meals for those in need.
Check out our media coverage and grand opening celebration video to hear more about what this space means to Philabundance, our surrounding neighborhood and the great city of Philadelphia.
Philabundance Community Kitchen is a 16-week culinary training and life skills program, providing opportunities to adults with no- to low income who need not just a job, but a second chance at life. Students learn everything from knife skills to life skills including budgeting, meditation, interpersonal communication, resume building, interview preparation, sautéing, grilling, working with various types of food and how to thrive in a professional kitchen setting. Since 2000, the program has graduated over 920 students. Part of the PCK program includes our social enterprise, PCKatering, which provides great food that gives back; proceeds of all orders benefit students, gradates and our neighbors facing hunger.
