We fund projects that bring a love of good food and healthy cooking skills
right to the individuals and communities that need it most.

Many of us have been led to believe that cooking is either drudgery or magic. It’s neither! It’s a simple skill, one traditionally learned by hanging out in the kitchen and practicing little by little.

HKI-funded projects provide the kitchen and the teaching needed to help individuals and communities acquire the basic skills needed to cook. Everyone can learn!

Gathering together in the kitchen is a daily act of nourishment and healing that can knit people together across generations and cultures. HKI is committed to providing funding to help breathe life back into healthful, flavorful cooking from our rich culinary traditions.

We are especially focused on helping those who lack access and who need healing.
