Welcome to our 

Community Kitchen!


The Community Teaching Kitchen at Seva Food Bank - Malton is directed by our belief that no one should ever go hungry in our community. Over the years at the food bank, we have noticed some clients ask only for frozen meals or canned goods. We discovered that some people grew up in such difficult circumstances that they never really learned how to cook or could not find the time. Or that they were so new to Canada, that so much of the good food we had available was foreign to them.


The Community Teaching Kitchen allows us to host interactive cooking classes facilitated by a professional Culinary Chef. Clients have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of cooking while meeting new people. Our long term goal is to create positive impact on food security for families and individuals in our community. With the support of our partners, community members and employees, we engage clients in learning how to cook simple and nutritious meals using affordable ingredients provided at the food bank. We aspire to work towards a measurable reduction in food insecurity while promoting healthy and culturally-appropriate food to meet the diverse needs of our clientele.


Our Kitchen is fully certified and also available for rent for a nominal fee. You are required to have your Food Handler’s certificate and your own liability insurance. We will ask you to review and sign our Liability Waiver and Kitchen Terms of Use document.
