The Teaching Kitchen at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House
The Neighborhood House has created a leading-edge training, technical assistance and consulting program to help local nonprofit organizations with institutional food programs serving low-income clients to convert their programs to – or accelerate their progress towards – our farm-to-institution model.
The Teaching Kitchen at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House is a nuts-and-bolts food business course designed to share our model and best practices with a wide-range of peer organizations. Led by Executive Chef Lynn Loflin, the tailored curriculum and consultations help participants transform their food programs to serve significantly more fresh, healthy and local food – without raising costs. The Teaching Kitchen is the only program of its kind and will positively and permanently impact thousands of low-income New Yorkers and millions of institutional meals annually. The ultimate goal of the program is to localize publicly-funded institutional food systems, more broadly improving the health of low-income New Yorkers and strengthening the regions’ farms, economy and sustainability.
