Come together virtually to cook-a-long and enjoy a vegetarian or plant-based meal, while connecting with other SFU students.

Community Kitchens are a low-barrier gathering space where SFU students come together to cook-a-long and share stories through food.


Join us for our Virtual Community Kitchen over Zoom, April 8th. We’re welcoming this month’s facilitator, Chloe Goodison!

Chloe Goodison (she/her/hers) : An uninvited guest on Coast Salish territory, specifically of the Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, Qayqayt, Kwikwetlem and Stó:lō nations, where she lives, works, and plays. Chloe is currently in her first year at SFU, studying Health Sciences. Chloe absolutely loves food, she especially enjoys finding nutritious, convenient, and affordable recipes that can provide students with lots of energy. She loves nature and getting outside to go paddle-boarding and hiking around her own community in Port Moody, B.C.!

Today’s recipe is a nutritious, wholesome and convenient dish for Chloe and her family. With lifelong involvement in sports, stuffed peppers have always been a good dish to consume between practices. This recipe is also simple and quick to make after a long day of studying. Each recipe in Chloe’s home, including this one, has memories with friends and family attached to it. Stuffed peppers are a very flexible and adaptable dish! You could make it fully plant-based, or, if you eat dairy, you can easily add cheese to it! Chloe believes that adopting plant-based diets is a slow process, and there are steps along the way for everyone to land on and enjoy.

While we have moved this program online, we still want to make this space as low-barrier as possible. In partnership with the SFSS’s Women’s Centre, we will be offering support for groceries for Community Kitchen!
Please email Melisa Tang Choy, Embark’s Programs Manager, at programs@embarksustainability.org. We will be asking for your contact information and to fill out a Participant Data Storage Agreement.

When are we sending the recipes out?
We will be sending out the recipes in advance so you have time to get the ingredients. We will also be attaching the recipe with each reminder.
