Impact Kitchen was founded on the belief that food has the power to shape our daily lives. That real, wholesome ingredients, prepared simply and with integrity, can provide us with the energy to take on the day with ambition and optimism.
Our first Impact Kitchen location opened in 2015 in the up-and-coming wellness community of Corktown on King Street East, and built what has since become a hub for the community, a place where people come in for a quick bite or to linger with friends over a meal prepared by a team that prioritizes the health and well-being of its customers.
