BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER AROUND FOOD
Food is the glue that binds people and communities together. Here at the Conscious Kitchen, we want to connect people from all backgrounds, with a warm meal and a welcoming community.
At the Conscious Kitchen, we believe that consciousness is a way of living. When it comes to food waste, we strive to save as much food as we can. But it doesn't stop there, we also try to bring people closer to one another by working together to create our weekly Conscious Dinners.
These dinners are created through the collective effort of all our volunteers. From those who help rescue the food at the markets to those who help clean up after the dinners, everyone is an essential part of the project.
Our vision is to help foster a community of people who care about the world around them. To put it simply, we hope that you leave our dinners with a full stomach, mind, and heart.
How do These Dinners Work?
We source almost all of our food from local markets, which would have otherwise been wasted. The food we save is then turned into a loving meal with the help of our community of volunteers and those around you. We sit at long communal tables, so during the dinner, you will meet people from all walks of life. We simply ask that when you do, try to keep this guide in mind.
The Guide For Good Vibes
Everyone is equal - be inclusive
An atmosphere of mutual respect goes
a long way in creating lasting relationships.
If you see something wrong - try and fix it
Being helpful is a key ingredient for a community
that feels like everyone cares for each other.
Be conscious as often as you can
In what you do and what you say.
In what you take and what you give.
In the big things and the small things.
We can't change the world
if we are not aware of the world around us first.
Go outside your comfort zone
Meet new people,
have laughs you've never had,
add some of that spice to your sauce.
Don't wait for change to happen
or problems to resolve themselves.
When you decide to do something - do it.
There is no try.
“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
