The Kitchen Community, a 501c3 non profit organization, was founded in 2011 by Kimbal Musk and Hugo Matheson to provide all children the opportunity to learn, play, and grow in healthy communities.

The Kitchen Community builds Learning Gardens in low-income schools, creating 

• Engaging outdoor classrooms
• Thriving vegetable gardens
• Gathering places for communities


Today The Kitchen Community has built nearly 250 Learning Gardens and is impacting over 125,000 children every day! 

Musk and Matheson believe that gathering around the table and sharing good food is what connects us as family, friends, and community. From family dinners to healthy lifestyles, what and how we eat matters. Good food culture brings people together, makes our kids more engaged students, and enables our community to live long, healthy and productive lives. 

All children, regardless of zip code, deserve to grow up in strong communities, engaged by dynamic classes and fueled by fresh fruits and vegetables. Join The Kitchen Community today to create community through food!
