"WE WANT TO SEE CULTURES CELEBRATED, UNDERSTOOD AND SHARED."

Ekta Amarnani,

              founder

Mom’s Kitchen was created from a dream Ekta Amarnani had for her local community in Toronto several years ago. A wild idea and one of Toronto’s first food delivery social enterprises, Mom’s Kitchen is a home-style food delivery project that provides food to anyone who orders. In order to keep the project viable, Mom's Kitchen adopted a contribution model where patrons are encouraged to donate what they can, either through a gift of labour, skills or simply to ‘pay as you feel’, thus creating an effective tool for promoting social cohesion and inclusion. 

 

The values that Mom’s Kitchen stands for are those deeply rooted in a healthy human community. We want to see women flourish and be provided with economic opportunities, which is why we employ immigrant and refugee women as our chefs. We want to see cultures celebrated, understood, and shared, which is why we chose to keep all our food as traditional and ‘home-style’ as possible. And of course, a healthy human community means no one is turned away from a good, hearty meal, which is why we’ve adopted our unique contribution model. 

Having worked in community development and food security for the last 7 years, being a woman and an immigrant herself, Ekta found herself craving her mother’s dhal and rice. After endless searching, she found it nearly impossible to find home-style meals and decided to create a platform to share home-style meals herself. We hope you learn, contribute, and share our community space with us!
