QI Cafe


What is it?

QI Cafe is a multi-faceted skill building activity offered twice a month where we plan, shop for, and create a meal of our choice. These activities allow us to work on several skills of daily living:

  • Meal Planning
  • Budgeting
  • Cleaning Skills
  • Kitchen Safety
  • Teamwork
  • Shopping
  • Culinary Skills



First, during our monthly calendar development, we decide on two meals we would like to create. We create a shopping list and budget. Then, we do comparison shopping online.


Shopping, Creating, and Eating

After we create our list and make sure it's within our budget, we shop for our ingredients. Then, we learn step-by-step how to make the meal with 100% hands-on experience!

.. Then, obviously, we enjoy!
