Change from within

Our Mission

CULIKID’s mission is to help kids with special needs to integrate socially through culinary classes in local cafes, restaurants and schools with emphasis on healthy cooking.




Culikid’s mission is to help children, adolescents, and adults with special needs strengthen their social, independent living, and motor skills through culinary experiences. We use cooking as an opportunity for individuals with special needs to increase independence, build relationships, put basic academic skills to use in a functional way, and learn how to eat healthier.



Our vision is a world where individuals with special needs and their families are not stigmatized and excluded but instead are fully engaged and integrated into society, sharing their talents and passions with people around them, and leading meaningful and happy lives.


Culikid was initially made possible through a grant from COJECO.
