Cooking With Love Culinary Program coming soon to A Loving Village, INC!


We strive to help create opportunities in our community for our community.

Since 2017 we have been dedicating some of our time in our community growing A Loving Village, INC (ALV)  teaching their COOKING WITH LOVE cooking classes.

 Who is ALV?

 ALV is a nonprofit organization (founded by Alicia Thee Chef) whose mission is to support young people by exposing them to positive life-changing experiences so that they become confident, strong pillars in our community.

  ALV’s goal is to create a variety of programs for troubled, at risk youth/young adults, as well as young people who have lost a parent to violence. 

Their current program is Cooking With Love which are cooking classes that teaches basic healthy cooking. In the past we have taught Cooking With Love at Lighthouse Youth Center, MPS Twilight Centers, and Kingdom Prep Lutheran High School!
