Second Harvest partners with food banks and meal centers in the Inland Northwest to provide food to people who need it; in one week they feed over 55,000 people. The Kitchen takes it a step further by “investing in long-term health through nutrition education and hands-on cooking lessons.” According to their website:

The Kitchen empowers families to reduce or eliminate the foods that contribute to obesity and nutrition-related health conditions. Children and adults learn to make healthy yet economical food choices, helping them move out of poverty.

By taking cooking classes at the Kitchen at Second Harvest, patrons not only have a fun time and learn how to cook something delicious, they also help fund free cooking and nutrition classes for people experiencing hardships. That way, everyone is able to have fun and learn how to prepare fresh, healthy food.
