Triad Mobile Kitchen

Beep beep! Let's fuel healthy cooking habits across the Triad.

The Triad Mobile Kitchen is traveling across the region to tackle nutrition insecurity, courtesy of Blue Cross NC. Over 10,000 families in under-served communities are learning healthy cooking skills and discovering local resources every year. We've been busy branching out to Forsyth County, and just added a physical “home” kitchen at the Historic Magnolia House in Greensboro. Join us for a FREE healthy cooking class, or let us come to you!


150,000 people live with food insecurity, and 47 food deserts exist right here in the Triad.
