Community Kitchen

We believe that everyone should have access to affordable and nutritious food.

A view of the community kitchen

How it operates

Our aim

For nearly 15 years ADCG has demonstrated a commitment to youth empowerment, building community capacity, increasing local food access, and addressing the root causes of hunger.

Our Community Kitchen represents the next step in our commitment to building resilience in our local food system. In addition to housing our cooking and nutrition programming, our kitchen is a commercially licensed space that is available for use by local food businesses and producers. 

It’s part of our work to support the initiative to end hunger in Maine by 2030.

It hosts varied events, such as:
  • At Maine SNAP-ed cooking classes

  • Youth Leadership Programs

  • Classes from MSAD 17

  • Free cooking and gardening workshops

  • Community meals

  • Value-added products and food preservation


And many more!

Want to use the space?

Our kitchen is equipped with a 10 burner stove, double industrial ovens, a three bay sink and dishwasher, ample counter space, and a variety of smaller instruments and equipment such as cutting boards, stock pots, pans, baking sheets, blenders, and knives.

As with most of our programming, there will be a sliding scale rental fee depending on the size and type of organization to use the kitchen.

If you could benefit from using this new space, please let us know by filling out our interest form, sending us a brief email, or giving us a call to tell us how you would like to use the Community Kitchen at ADCG.
