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 New York State Health Foundation awarded The Teaching Kitchen their 2016 Emerging Innovator Award, which honors organizations “poised to make radical improvements to the state of New York’s health over the next 10 years.”  The New York Times recently profiled The Teaching Kitchen in a lengthy article available here.

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 organizations.  Led by Teaching Kitchen Executive Chef Lynn Loflin and Teaching Kitchen Chefs Evelyn Garcia and Seema Pai, the tailored curriculum, site visits, year-long technical assistance, ongoing professional development workshops, recipes and web-based resources help participants transform their food programs to serve significantly more fresh, healthy and local food – without raising costs. 

To date, The Teaching Kitchen has assisted 101 organizations serving more than 7 million 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. 


The Teaching Kitchen’s Farm-to-Institution Panel Discussion, February 21, 2019

The Teaching Kitchen at Lenox Hill Neighborhood House hosted a panel to discuss what opportunities exist for action and collaboration to improve publicly funded meals, how we further farm-to-institution goals, how we develop policies and processes to effect wellness for low-income New Yorkers, and how we strengthen the local food shed and create a more healthy and equitable food system.
