Community Kitchen

Our Community Kitchen, now closed due to lack of demand post-pandemic, was a training ground for the women we serve. Working with us at the kitchen helped our participants to build self confidence and the job skills necessary to contribute in the formal workforce. We offered nutrition-focused food security for the community at large, serving thousands of healthy meals during the COVID period and beyond. We also offered workshops to our participants in themes of professional development, health and wellbeing, and personal growth. Coming together to serve the community enabled the participants to create community among themselves, a benefit that proved especially invaluable to our participants who were recent arrivals from Venezuela and had no local social networks. Although this initiative has now ended, it served as the launchpad for our ongoing education initiatives that are now spread across the city of Medellin.

“This project is not only limited to providing food to the community but also is an opportunity to provide for a vulnerable neighbourhood. What we do goes beyond just relieving food insecurity but is also contributing to a better quality of life for the mothers that are part of this project. I am a mother and I am happy and proud to be part of Proyecto Florecer.”
