The Flatlander Teaching Kitchen and Community Classroom will be opening this month! How exciting! The Teaching Kitchen, in Common Ground’s expanded store represents a space for community to thrive and for educational programming that empowers people and teaches them invaluable life skills. We are grateful for vision and financial support from the Flatlander Food Foundry, born out of Dan Schreiber’s dreams for our community. Our Co-op’s Ends, which represent the vision that our owners have for the future of our store compliment Dan Schreiber’s conviction in support of education as a tool to make food a community asset and empower people to feed themselves and their families well and we hope to work with you, our community, to build the most exciting and effective educational programming that we can.
Many of you have heard of the Flatlander story, some of you never have. In June of this year our General Manager, Jacqueline Hannah, wrote a thorough and illuminating article that told the story of Dan Schreiber, for whom the Flatlander Community Kitchen/Classroom space is named. Check it out here.
