Historically, TKP and our supporters gather together to celebrate accomplishments of the year. This year, we will again celebrate together - virtually! TKP will share our impact, which has been especially vital during this time of pandemic and health crisis, and illustrate areas where you, our friends and supporters, are invited to be a part of continuing to build healthier communities through food.  

Since the start of the pandemic in March, Teen Kitchen Project has been on the front lines, providing meals to those who cannot shop or cook meals, due to illness. Over the past six months, the need for meal service has continued to grow, and, thanks to the generous support of our community, we have not had to turn anyone away. 

However, we NEED YOU to help TKP to meet the continued demand for free, nutritious, delicious meals for individuals and their families dealing with life-threatening illness during this especially challenging time.

Please join us on Sunday, October 18th for our Virtual Gathering, "Far Apart but Close at Heart."  Learn about Teen Kitchen Project’s latest activities, hear first-hand stories from our clients and volunteers, and donate to help those in our community who need it most. 

If you donate $128 or more, and live in Santa Cruz County, you will receive a brunch box. The brunch box, made by our own Teen Chefs with guidance from Santa Cruz’s own Stephany Buswell, of The Food Network fame, will include a vegetarian seasonal frittata, homemade cinnamon rolls, berries, orange juice, champagne and 2 Verve Coffee drip kits.

If you’re not able to attend, we will be sorry to miss you. HOWEVER, you can still participate through making a donation or becoming an event sponsor.
