One method of getting the word out for our MY KITCHEN Outreach Program, is to throw “SupperClub Parties” with families, friends, and supporters of our non-profit charity.
It’s all about fun, highlighting the things that the MK chefs do best: teaching hands-on cooking skills, and serving amazing food!
How it works:
Each host invites 10-15 friends over to their house, and we share a little bit about what we do, give some hands-on cooking demos of several recipes that follow a specific theme chosen by the host, maybe drink a little wine (at the host’s discretion), and then enjoy the fruits of our labors with a multi-course tapas-style meal of the dishes we’ve just learned to prepare.
Attendees are welcome to participate in the prep and cooking, or not, no pressure.
It’s a casual, low-stress, lots-of-laughs night with friends and family, that helps us help kids…
How’s THAT for a win-win?
See you there!

Additional sides, beverages, and desserts may be added to the base menu for an additional fee. MY KITCHEN is not licensed to provide or serve alcohol, but you are certainly welcome to do so yourselves. Plating and serving-ware are provided by the host, or by us for an additional fee.
10 Guest minimum.*
Per our “Personal Chef” status, the States of Oregon/Washington require that there must be a residential kitchen onsite, and that we use that facility to prepare food.
Gratuities are not included in ingredient/materials pricing, nor required, but if you love the class (and you will) we never turn down a tip! All gratuities will be considered a donation to the MY KITCHEN Outreach Program, and used soley for the outreach. Tax-deductible receipts for tips and donations are can be provided.
*Obviously, our goal in these SupperClubs is to raise funds and support for the MY KITCHEN Program. Please keep this is mind when inviting attendees to your event, and consider those with the ability, means, and desire to partner with charities like ours to help mentor kids and feed the hungry.
