Community Culture Kitchen
"Food is our common ground, a universal experience." —James Beard
The Community Culture Kitchen (CCK), which is hosted at The Open House (located at 204 N. Mulberry St.), is a collaborative program between the Center for Religious and Spiritual Life and the Office of Multi-Cultural Student Affairs. At each CCK event, participants learn about the culinary and cultural significance of food in relation to its preparation and roles in celebrating and expressing a group's identities. Academic departments and student groups are invited to partner with the CCK in planning an event which speaks to specific traditions that are connected in some way to food.
As this program is only just beginning this January, a formal semester schedule has not yet been established. However, please take note that there will be other Community Culture Kitchen events throughout the semester, and priority will be given to those who have not previously attended an event. If you register for any CCK event, this will not necessarily prevent you from attending future ones; others will simply be put at a higher priority status for subsequent events.
