Collective Kitchen

The Collective Kitchen is a great way for students to come together, learn new skills and take home meals. You must be a current, full-time Fanshawe student to participate. Each participant must wear closed-toe/non-slip footwear and if you have long hair, it must be tied up.

The next Collective Kitchen event will occur on Monday, June 17, 2024 between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
