ABOUT SUN VALLEY KITCHEN + COMMUNITY CENTER

Sun Valley, a highly diverse neighborhood in Denver, is characterized by a strong and unique sense of community, but also by significant challenges. The area lacks healthy food access, with approximately three quarters of its residents living below the poverty line. The core of SVKCC’s mission is to feed families with food and love. Over the past ten years, Sun Valley Kitchen + Community Center has grown organically to become a community hub, youth employer, catalyst for entrepreneurship, provider of enrichment programs for children and local youth, a restaurant, and a No Cost Grocery Program (“food pantry”). Our location on 1260 Decatur Street in Denver provides a unique space with a commercial kitchen.
