The Preservation Kitchen

Designing for Social Change:
Slow Design and the Slow Food Movement

Preservation Kitchen is a project focused on stress relief by applying the main principles of the Slow Food movement through collaboration with local ethnic neighbourhoods, students in elementary and high schools, and seniors.

The goal is to form a connection between students and seniors through the transfer of food-based knowledge.

The activity not only improves mental health but also leads to a strong bond within the community, does good for overall food waste in the city, gives the students knowledge of local, seasonal produce and gives back to those in need.
