Cultural and Community Kitchen

“It’s hard to fathom, but even in Canada, a number of people live every day with hunger. Lack of resources means that they are without access to enough affordable, nutritious food.”

Cultural and Community Kitchen


Come celebrate who we are as individuals and as a community. Join us twice a month, when a facilitator will introduce his or her culture and demonstrate how to make a food item.

The best part? We all get to eat afterward!

Whether you’re from St. Albert, Edmonton or Stony Plain, you’re invited to join us every second Tuesday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. No registration required. Everyone is welcome.

The Cultural and Community Kitchen is embedded in the St. Albert Social Master Plan and informed by interactions with a variety of culturally-diverse St. Albert neighbourhoods: we learned that residents had a deep desire to have a space where they could develop relationships through a shared love of cooking and eating.

Many thanks to all Cultural Kitchen participants – we had a fantastic year learning about many new foods and meeting such wonderful people. We look forward to the next sessions which start in the fall. The first evening back is Tuesday, Sept. 10 and we will be enjoying food from Sri Lanka. Hope to see you all then.
