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.
