When Chef Eliza Martin graduated from college, she was unable to name five friends who could cook for themselves, she being one of them. She ventured to New York City and had to learn how to feed herself for the very first time. As she began to cook for herself, she felt a new sense of empowerment in providing personal nourishment from her own two hands. She believes sharing this incredible confidence is important.
With that being said, we would like to propose a San Francisco Community Event called The Solidarity Kitchen, making others feel warm and welcome through food. The primary way to love ourselves is through care for others and our heritage. Healthy ingredients, family-favorite recipes, and creative food ideas will be shared at our Solidarity Kitchen table. The most impressive result will be the range of cross-culture interactions among all teams, household types, and especially through teaching young individuals to nourish their bodies and cook with the earth’s resources. Given our city location, we share our experience hoping that other urban communities will also commune together through food and healthful ideas. We strive to make an effective contribution to improving the community and ignite organic healthy habits. We will build out this community event by diving into specific culinary topics; for example, pasta-making or wine curating.
