Huntington's Kitchen in downtown Huntington, WV was originally established as "Jamie's Kitchen" during the television production of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, Season 1. Jamie saw his vision come to life as a warm and welcoming environment, where people from the community could gather to learn to cook with fresh, wholesome ingredients. When filming wrapped, he wanted the kitchen to remain open to the public, to further his mission of bringing healthy cooking skills back to the people of Huntington.
That's when local non-profit health care provider Ebenezer Medical Outreach, Inc. (EMO) stepped in to oversee operations of the kitchen, which was supported financially by Cabell Huntington Hospital. EMO managed Huntington’s Kitchen for three years and, with financial support from the hospital totaling more than a quarter of a million dollars over those years, was able to provide hundreds of cooking classes to well over a thousand local residents.
On August 1, 2013, Cabell Huntington Hospital assumed full management and oversight of Huntington’s Kitchen, and with the input and assistance from an active community advisory panel, Huntington's Kitchen is now offering a wide array of cooking classes, demonstrations and events designed to measurably improve the health status of the community.
The kitchen is managed by Joy Dalton, an experienced restaurant management teacher, whose energy and passion is breathing new life into Huntington’s Kitchen and the Food Revolution in the Huntington area. Though Huntington's Kitchen is the first and only one of its kind in America, we hope to inspire other communities to establish more kitchens like it around the country.
