Community Kitchen

In 2009, Accent on Ability funded the hiring of a consultant with wide experience on Community Kitchens to test the feasibility of setting up a Community Kitchen at the A-Way Express premises.  

Amanda Montgomery, the consultant, carried out an extensive feasibility study that included interviews with potential users of such a kitchen, focus group discussions and two test community kitchen events.  A number of recommendations were made, including the manner in which the existing kitchen at A-Way would have to be modified to house a regular Community Kitchen activity. Several of those physical changes have been made and it is expected that regular Community Kitchen events will be held there in the near future.
