How it works
Crowd Kitchen is a marketplace for sharing homemade food -- because there's a community full of chefs just outside your door. You see them at school dropoff. You wave to them on your evening walk. You say hello in the apartment elevator. All you have to do is look around, and you'll find them. They make meals every day for their families. You do the same thing! What if, working together, everyone could enjoy a variety of delicious home cooked dishes AND spend less time, money, and effort preparing them? That's what Crowd Kitchen is all about.
How does Crowd Kitchen work?
Let's say you're a busy mom (is there any other kind?) who needs a break from cooking but not from healthy eats. Take a few extra moments one day to make an oversized batch of your favorite casserole, then share it with another family. You earn Meal Tickets for the food you give away...use the cost of the dish's ingredients to determine its Meal Ticket value. Later, redeem those Meal Tickets to claim a dish of your choice from the Crowd Kitchen Market. Two homemade meals. One night of cooking. Pretty great, right?
Or how about this: Maybe you're single, like to cook, but hate the endless leftovers. Share your spare food, stop wasting the extras, and enjoy someone else's homemade dish in return.
Host an Event
Sharing food with one person at a time is fun. Sharing with lots of friends at once can be fun too! So check out our Group Events section. Frozen supper clubs, Christmas cookie swaps, pot lucks, and more can be organized in one convenient place. We'll bet you can think of a million other ways to share food with friends! No Meal Tickets needed here...just smiles and happy tummies.
Help a Friend
Sharing food is an age-old way to say, "I care," and to lift a burden from a friend or neighbor in need. Crowd Kitchen can help you rally your community to lend a helping hand. Use our Crowd Share tool to invite friends and family to your cause, create a calendar of meal drop-offs, and avoid logistics problems like overlapping delivery days or meal duplications.
