About Kitchen Connection:

KitchenConnection.org is an online community where chefs and lay food lovers can host or participate in online and interactive cooking classes. The hosts of the classes (connections) can be paid, or choose to donate some or all of the funds from the class to the partner charity, Action Against Hunger and most recently, Whole Food's Whole Planet Foundation.

We focus on one country every month, and in 2018, we are focusing on countries that are the focus of the UN Together Campaign, with specific attention drawn to the implementation of the SDGs. As part of this feature, we host in-person events like this one to allow participants on and offline to come together with food as a vehicle towards greater understanding.

Some examples of our events include: Israel & Palestine — Greek Month and Peru Month — both with the Greek and Peruvian trade commissioners/consuls in attendance, and at the French Embassy, where we hosted students to learn French through an interactive online cooking experience.

We operate on two pillars:

1. Live in a Hunger-Free World: The hosts of the classes (connections) can be paid, or choose to donate some or all of the funds from the class to the partner charity, Action Against Hunger and most recently, Whole Food's Whole Planet Foundation, promoting our core value: “I’m Eating — You’re Eating — And Because We’re Eating Together, Someone Else is Eating, Too”

2. Promote “Gastrodiplomacy” : in the overarching climate of cultural misunderstandings and misrepresentations, Kitchen Connection is combating this by connecting people to learn about each from each other through an online, interactive cooking experience that opens up deeper conversation.
