On March 1, the Wellness Kitchen in Templeton will be set up and ready to serve in its commercial kitchen again, 1255 Las Tablas Road, suite 102. The nonprofit closed temporarily after a fire in October damaged the kitchen. The Wellness Kitchen resumed its weekly therapeutic meal program in December thanks to the help of the Atascadero Bible Church's commercial kitchen and hosted its monthly healthy cooking classes at Idler's in Paso Robles, but it is ready to return home! From March 11 through 15, the kitchen will host a grand re-opening appreciation week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with samples of healing tea, plus opportunities to purchase grab-n-go deli lunch items, sign up for classes, and order meals (learn more at thewkrc.org).
