When young women nourish their body and soul, they are educating their minds, strengthening their communities, and inspiring leadership

The Culinary Academy is a teaching lab and entrepreneurial center for Young Women on the Move members and their families utilizing the Young Women on the Move Community Garden, and partnerships with local chef organizations. The Academy offers educational programs, networking opportunities, and collaborative work with community organizations.

Our community garden and partnerships with local organizations allow our students to learn life skills such as gardening, nutrition, healthy meal preparation, and entrepreneurship. The Culinary Academy is a vital component for our young women to be equipped for educating and instilling healthy behaviors in food science, urban gardening, and fostering entrepreneurial projects that address the hunger needs of youth and families in our community and beyond.
