Community Supported Kitchen (CSK)

At the CSK, we plant the seeds of a more resilient world by sharing skills & knowledge required to prepare amazing food anywhere, while investing in local community & a regenerative food system that nourishes deeply any place we call Home. Further, we help people connect with a passion for Life, through the shared experience of preparing & enjoying, beautifully sourced, delicious food.

We host regular faemily cook days, open to anyone, and offer a subscription menu (listed below) of prepared foods & pantry staples that are designed to add depth, zest, and serious nourishment to your day-to-day food world.

A note on how we operate :: We strive to find a transcendent balance between gathering the financial abundance we need to offer our goods & services, while keeping our offerings accessible to all. It is your sliding-scale donations, time trades, & bartering that keep our kitchen running in the gift economy.

A regenerative food system is one that heals the planet, and raises the collective health of our shared communities. Meanwhile, we explore the potential of living systems to self-organize, as we add value to our interconnected lives.

Some of our GOALS in offering a CSK are the following:

– We share, celebrate & educate around regenerative food cultures & practices.

– We provide delicious, nourishing, righteously-sourced food — & share the wherewithal for anyone to make it at home.

– We demonstrate & actualize a system of eating that heals the planet, and raises the collective health of our shared communities.

– The space becomes a hub to connect our intersecting communities — as we explore the potential of living systems to self-organize & add value to our lives.

– We co-create a collaborative atmosphere & feel, each of us, empowered to make the space fit each of our needs & desires — as we grow together a learning & playing environment that feels relevant to our lives.

– We co-create a space that is nourishing to our bodies, minds, and spirits.

– We co-create a growing vision of and toward a Faerie Ca’Fae & store-front in West Philly — and practice working together toward common goals.

– We create opportunities for abundance and capital in many forms to flow amongst all involved.

– We gather in the financial abundance we need to sustain the CSK and to support our lives and work.
