18 Reasons


About us: 

18 Reasons is a nonprofit cooking school on a mission to empower our community with the confidence and creativity needed to buy, cook, and eat good food every day. We offer two food education programs. At our 18th Street Kitchen in San Francisco, we host paid cooking classes with chefs from around the world, and ticket sales help support our free programming for families facing food insecurity in the Bay Area. Through our Cooking Matters, Planned and Prepped, and Nourishing Pregnancy programs, we offer weekly grocery donations paired with free cooking and nutrition classes for families, adults, and pre- and post-partum birthing parents. Our vision is to create equity and belonging through the transformative and healing power of home cooking.
