Empowering our youth to create a happier, healthier world

How Can I Help by Little Kitchen Academy

At Little Kitchen Academy, we care about educating the whole child and teaching practical life skills, both inside and outside the kitchen. We believe in empowering our youth to empower others. That’s why we created How Can I Help by Little Kitchen Academy, a first-of-its-kind philanthropic program, that puts the power of giving into the hands of our students and will create a generation that cares about the world around them.

Every student will learn about our three charitable partners and be given the chance to ask ‘how can I help’, feeling empowered to make a choice about what matters most to them and learning that they can make the world a better place. Little Kitchen Academy will donate $1 on behalf of every student to the charity they choose to help.

For How Can I Help by Little Kitchen Academy, we have partnered with four notable charities doing important work: Chefs for Humanity, The Global FoodBanking Network, Kids Help Phone (for locations in Canada), and PHIT America (for locations in the US). Each student will learn what each of these organizations do and how they can help others by choosing to support that work.
