Cooking Without a Kitchen

Home Cooking Without a Kitchen was created by Jewish Family & Children’s Service in partnership with Project Bread.

Home Cooking Without a Kitchen offers recipes that are budget conscious, kid-friendly, nutritious, and do not require a full kitchen.

In this tough economy, many low-income families have lost their jobs and their housing.  Currently, there are over 2,000 homeless families residing in hotel and motel rooms across Massachusetts. Most of these families have access to little more than a microwave and a bathroom sink to prepare healthy meals for their children. In response, Project Bread is making Home Cooking Without a Kitchen, available for homeless families residing in hotels.

This cookbook, available in English and Spanish, includes tips for cooking grains and fresh vegetables in a microwave, a suggested 3-day meal plan, information on microwave safe containers, and recipes that are budget conscious, kid-friendly, nutritious, and do not require a kitchen.
