About Us

ABOUT THE AIMS PROJECT:
AIMS is an innovative mental health cooking project. We work with people to improve their lives and wellness through hands-on work with healthy food, opportunities for meaningful work and social rehabilitation in kitchen and farm/garden and community settings, connections with information and resources for healthier living, and advocating for food justice and access to healthy food for the Tenderloin community.
Our AIMS:
1-Cooking that serves our community and builds community: Peers feeding our Tenderloin community delicious, healthy food. Introducing exciting new tastes, recipes, ingredients, and experiences through our activities. Good food is healing and inspiring; it brings us together - decreasing isolation.
2-Sharing experience: Peers sharing cooking skills, recipes, nutrition basics, and life experiences to support wellness of self and others: physical and mental health. Connecting people with local resources and information for free to low-cost nutritious food.
3-Advocating for food justice: Peers working for greater access to healthy, fresh, affordable ingredients in the TL. We work for healthy corner stores and community gardens. Nourishing food is our right.
