Cook It! Kits

Based on a needs assessment of our clients, we determined that 83% of single-room occupancy (SRO) tenants would cook more frequently if they had adequate cooking supplies. So in 2013, thanks to generous funding from the San Francisco Human Services Agency (SFHSA), we created and distributed 176 Cook It! Kits to individuals living in SROs who attended our Food Smarts Workshops. Cook It! Kits include:

  • Crock pot
  • Cutting board
  • Chef knife
  • Vegetable Peeler
  • Wooden stirring spoon
  • Food storage container
  • Measuring cups (liquid)
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Dishwashing Soap
  • Sponge
  • Dish towels
  • Olive oil
  • Can opener
  • Spices (oregano, garlic powder, cinnamon)
  • Grater
  • reusable bag

Funding and distribution continues thanks to SFHSA, who has committed to fund this project through 2017.

Recipients in 2015 came from: Healthright360, Compass House, Bevan Dufty's Office, Tom Waddell Urban Health Clinic, Trans Thrive/Tom Waddell, Hospitality House, San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, Interfaith Community Services, Clara House, Alexander House, HOPE SF, MEI, Hospitality House, and Verona Hotel.
