Meet Kira Wynocker, Village Project’s Culinary Director.
A nurse by day, a mother and chef come night, Kira knows the value and potential impact of a wholesome, healthy meal. When she isn’t delivering babies at Cleveland Clinic’s Fairview birthing center, helping women assume the mantle of motherhood, she’s trying to instill the importance and impact of nutrition on her four children. Growing up with two parents who loved to experiment in the kitchen, the passion for food is deeply rooted. From preparation to feast, breaking bread with loved ones has always been important. Being the culinary director at the Village Project gives Kira an opportunity to guide young adults in the kitchen and to share her love with her community.
As Culinary Director, she oversees our kitchen program, designing menus that are both nourishing and delicious. Recipes are carefully selected; they are nutrient dense and are free from white flour and processed sugar.
Along with three complete meals that are delivered weekly to the entire family, clients also receive a wonderful herb and vegetable immunity broth. During periods of treatment, radiation and chemotherapy can diminish a client’s appetite and ability to swallow. Prepared weekly in our kitchen, this broth simmers for hours and provides essential nutrients so critical to maintaining the individual’s strength.
