Food is Fuel

At the RyZe Kitchen, we serve communities of all ages in a variety of ways. From our nutrition-based cooking programs, health education classes, and community gardens, we feed our neighbors through food, creativity, and innovation.

As a center for education and well-balanced diets, the RyZe Kitchen offers a variety of nutrition-based programs. Junior Chef and Junior Pastry Chef classes provide a safe space for youth to harness their creative potential and share their culinary masterpieces with their families. Our senior programs offer a space to learn about diabetes, hypertension, and heart health. 

Keep our kitchen programming going
