Triad Mobile Kitchen


The Triad Mobile Kitchen is traveling across the region to tackle nutrition insecurity, courtesy of Blue Cross NC. Over 10,000 families in under-served communities learn healthy cooking skills and discover local resources every year via the mobile kitchen. The Triad Mobile Kitchen just added a physical “home” site at The Historic Magnolia House. Join us for a FREE healthy cooking class, or let us come to you! Learn more about opportunities with the mobile kitchen below.

The Freedom Cornerstone


The theme of “Freedom” is inspired by Greensboro’s role in the Civil Rights Movement, especially the non-violent protests of the pivotal 1960 lunch-counter sit-ins that served as a catalyst to the larger movement. Racial justice and equity  played an important role in shaping the city and defining its identity. Select artists explore this history as well as consider what Freedom means today at the “Freedom Cornerstone” on the Downtown Greenway, located at the corner of Murrow Blvd and Gate City Blvd in Greensboro. Learn more about the cornerstone art project below.
