Campus Dining is part of the Teaching Kitchen Collaborative, which seeks to advance personal and public health through culinary literacy and integrative lifestyle transformation. Developed as an invitational, multi-year learning network of thought leaders, the TKC will enable early adopters to:
- Learn about one another’s teaching kitchen facilities and educational programs.
- Develop “best practices” for reproducibility/scalability of these emerging models and programs.
- Explore the creation of a research network to support the evaluation of clinical, behavioral and financial impacts of selected best practices across various populations.
Last year, Campus Dining held seven programs across campus. Our inaugural teaching kitchen session launched on Food Day in 2016.
