“The Kitchen Table Program” provides a community hub for addressing needs of disadvantaged, youth, families, and senior adults. It is being sponsored by an organization that has a history of compassion and response to those needs, by providing a safe and inviting venue for dissemination of ideas and services to and among displaced populations.

Projects of The Kitchen Table Program include the following:

The garden project – building and planting onsite gardens and conducting workshops on gardening for youth and community residents who are provided beginning utensils and instruction for home gardening. The garden project also conducts onsite and offsite workshops with community adult organizations.
Construction of an onsite kitchen/meeting/dining facility for daily cooking demonstration, programing, and assistance to served populaces. Adult cooking classes will be scheduled that include instruction on preparation, nutrition and inclusion of health benefits of modifying the African American traditional diet.
As a community resource, CHA compiles literature and a list of service organizations for referral.
Small business start-up assistance and financial literacy workshops.
