“An amazing meal, and I’ve learned so much. I’m very grateful to have experienced what the class was like.”

We were making a difference, but it wasn’t enough. We didn’t have a “home” that we could really build the relationships with people that was needed. We believe empowerment at the family level is the most inspiring and that is why we opened the 1 PL8 Cooking School! We understand how hard you work, and we want to help ensure that every penny you spend on food is utilized. We want to make sure the time you spend in the kitchen is quick and easy, while still producing an amazing healthy and delicious meal. And, we want to equip you with the confidence and assurance that the food you are eating or serving your children is nourishing and nutritious.
