18 Reasons is a nonprofit that increases food security through the power of home cooking

In our modern food environment, access to nutritious food is not enough. Food skills help people make informed choices about what to buy and how to make healthy meals - but are not always taught in homes or schools. 18 Reasons bridges this gap through hands-on classes that welcome community members of all skill levels and culinary heritages. Across our programming, we seek to create a joyful environment where everyone is welcome at our table.
