Gift Cards & Gift Memberships

Delight your friends with the gift of home cooking when you give them an 18 Reasons Gift Card or Gift Membership!

Gift card revenue and membership dues both help fund 18 Reasons' community program, Cooking Matters, a grocery donation program paired with healthy cooking classes for low-income families throughout the Bay Area. Your support keeps this program free for families in need.

Gift Cards

Choose from:

  • $36 gift card. Ideal for a "Date Night for Two" at one of our monthly Community Dinners.
  • $50 gift card. A great option for one online class ticket. One ticket allows for one device to login to Zoom, so a family or household can participate together.
  • $75 gift card. Purchase one of our Basic Knife Skills classes with this gift card; it’s one of our most popular classes and great for anyone intimidated by cooking.
  • $120 gift card. This is a common ticket price for many of our mid-week cooking classes, ranging from cooking fundamentals to cuisines around the world.
  • $130 gift card. Cooks who love to learn will appreciate using this gift card to buy one ticket to our 4-hour sessions on Fridays and Sundays.

The ideas listed above are just suggestions; please purchase the gift card amount that meets your budget. Any gift card can be used toward purchasing any 18th St. Kitchen ticket sold on, for both online and in-person events.

Gift card refund policy: All 18 Reasons gift card purchases are non-refundable as of 3 business days after purchase. If you have purchased a gift card and are unable to use it, consider gifting it to a friend or converting your gift card purchase into a donation. Donations to 18 Reasons are tax-deductible. Contact for next steps to convert your gift card purchase into a donation or requesting a refund. If a refund request is sent within 3 business days or purchase, we can offer a refund, less a nonrefundable 4% payment processing fee. (You can see all our registration policies here).
