About Us

Richmond Community Kitchen began with a desire to eat well and to build community around food. What started in a home kitchen has grown into a beautiful and welcoming storefront and event space where you can gather, learn, and explore the world of food as well as find meals that are quick, easy, locally-sourced, and healthy.
There are so many reasons that getting a healthy meal on the table is a challenge, and that challenge is different for each person out there: sometimes it's time and energy, sometimes it's from a lack of inspiration or knowledge, and sometimes it's access and affordability. Whatever your reason, RCK is here to support you in your journey toward your best relationship with food. 


Our innovative facility works to address as many of these challenges as possible through:

  • locally-sourced prepared meals for those short on time and energy
  • cooking classes for inspiration and knowledge
  • our Feed it Forward program provides free meals and classes to increase access and affordability

We also provide:

  • event space and kitchen rentals for community members
  • a cozy space during the day for folks to work or meet
  • a lending library of cookbooks



Amy Gifford

Co-founder/Executive Chef

Food is Love. At least in the house where Amy grew up. So many of her happiest memories involve food, from long-distance phone conversations with her grandmother about Lebanese-inspired recipes to standing next to her mother, hands in ground beef, learning the coveted secret to the perfect meatball. Still today, one of Amy's greatest pleasures is feeding people, especially her family, good food. For Amy, good means cooked from scratch, using fresh, whole ingredients grown nearby. In her home cooking, her professional life working with Vermont Food Education Every Day, and now at Richmond Community Kitchen, Amy places the highest value on using ingredients that have integrity to prepare meals with love. She can't wait to share them with you!

Erin McGuire

 Although Erin's life revolves around food now, her love of cooking and sharing food didn't start until her late 20s. Once that switch was flipped, though, she was off! Since moving to Vermont in 2009, she's worked in a cheese cave, chocolate shop, test kitchen, and more, and one of her greatest joys is trying and tweaking new recipes, then forcing her friends to eat them. (They're almost always desserts and they almost always taste good.) Her relationship with food is much like relationships with anything- constantly evolving- and she's looking forward to seeing where it goes.
