Here at The Kitchen, we've always been very forthcoming about our values. We believe in women. We believe in equality. And we believe in choice.

We will continue to actively support organizations that ensure people have access to healthcare services, including abortion. We will continue to support organizations focused on equality, equal pay and closing the wealth gap.

Today, like many of you, we're angry at this attack on human rights in communities across the spectrum. As a women-founded organization, we’re channeling our anger into real-time action by continuing to partner with nonprofits and individuals working in these spaces.

Two years ago our team, scratch that, our family, banded together during unprecedented times to come up with unique ways to continue to bring people together through food. We had to do things we'd never done before, change our mindsets, and take on challenges that truly pushed us.

We're so thankful to our kitchen family and will never forget that test and the lessons we learned from it. We're also grateful beyond words for the community who supported us through such an enduring time.

If you picked up meal kits, sent messages, or even sent us a ❤️ through social media, we're grateful for you.

Make no mis-steak, food is at the center of everything we do. It's the ingredient that brings us all together, and at The Kitchen, it's on full display. Our open kitchen adds an extra element to your event that can't be found anywhere else.

Walk up and talk to our team while they cook. Stand, stare, and drool. We're here for it all and can't wait to see you!
