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:

The Sunshine Kitchen offers high-quality and creative catering for small and mid-size events such as awards ceremonies, parties and meetings.
We will work with you to develop the menu that suits your event, building on the skills our team are developing, and provide seasonal, freshly-prepared food made from locally-sourced ingredients. We pay close attention not only to the quality and presentation of our foods but also to maintaining our excellent food hygiene standards.
The menu for each event is carefully developed following full consultation with you, our client. We offer creative advice and work with you to produce imaginative menus to make the most of the occasion, location, and mix of guests. We can cater for various dietary requirements including vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and more.
Hot soups, baked goods and preserves.
The Sunshine Kitchen team prides itself in its use of local and seasonal produce. We are based in beautiful Northeast Fife, where fruit and vegetables are plentiful, and there are a number of local producers from whom we regularly source our ingredients.
Understanding food, where it comes from and when it is in season is a key learning experience for our team members, and above all we want everyone to enjoy making the food. Our featured products at events include hot soups, baked goods and preserves.
