Signature Suppers Meetings

Meetings take place in community kitchens, private homes and at the Suppers Kitchen. Most start with food preparation, followed by a meal and discussion of a food and health-related topic. (Examples of health-related topics include immune support, blood sugar regulation and brain health.) Meals are carefully planned, considering the needs of the group, as well as particular dietary preferences. Whenever possible food is locally, seasonally and ethically sourced. Meetings are conducted by Trained Peer Facilitators, committed to supporting good health through cooking and eating a whole foods diet. Most meetings can accommodate about 10 guests, and the average cost to attend is $15-20.
