We make delicious food from locally-sourced produce in a supportive work environment.
The Sunshine Kitchen is a kitchen project for young adults with additional needs, who need ongoing support to be part of a working environment. Our young people attend activities voluntarily and in return they have the opportunity to learn how to make and market food products and to gain fun and rewarding experiences as part of a working team. We use a kitchen facility in Cupar, Fife where we make food to sell at local markets and events and provide catering. We also get together outside the kitchen for sales and marketing activities.
In all of our endeavours, we aim to use local produce whenever possible and have a strong commitment to sustainable packaging. Each month, we run a stall as part of Fife Farmers Market in Cupar, and we also run stalls as part of other events elsewhere. Details of our upcoming events are listed below or in the EVENTS section of this website. The Sunshine Kitchen is a registered charity and gratefully acknowledges the support from the following organisations and businesses:
WHO WE WORK WITH
The Sunshine Kitchen currently provides places for a number of young people who work together to develop and sell food products as part of a work-based initiative. Through this work, whether it is in the kitchen, at creative marketing sessions, or on our market stalls, the team members continue to develop and use a broad range of skills, and gain a sense of pride and achievement in their work.
We have a full team at present, however please do get in touch to enquire about our waiting list:
