Welcome to the newly renovated Kidney Community Kitchen

We hope you like the new look as much as we do! When the site first launched in 2011, we set out to create an easy to use, interactive and information-rich resource on diet and nutrition for people living with kidney disease.  Our objective remains the same today, with the site’s fresh new look, improved navigation and now it’s mobile and tablet friendly.  

The Kidney Community Kitchen was the first website of its kind when it first launched. Today, there are more renal diet information sites available, but what sets the Kidney Community Kitchen apart is our unique menu planner. We’re still under construction and this means we’ve had to temporarily disable the planner to make it an even better resource. The new planner will provide greater flexibility and will now allow you to add single food items to your plan, in addition to all the great recipes that you’ll find in the Cookbook.  

The goal of the Kidney Community Kitchen has always been to empower its users through information and resources. To continue to meet your needs, we invite you to have your say. By completing our survey, you have the opportunity to tell us which features you want in the new planner and any other tools and resources you’d like to see on the site.  

We’re always looking for new recipes to add to our database. If you have a favorite renal friendly recipe that you’d like to share it with us, please let us know. We can even give you some tips on taking a web-ready picture. Beyond recipes, you’ll find lots of other information on the Resource page, like What to do when you don’t feel like eating, and How to slow the progression of kidney disease. If you can’t find something you’re looking for, please let us know, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. Our dedicated team of volunteer renal dietitians are available to help answer your questions. 

Following a kidney diet can be complex and frustrating because it differs from person to person based on stage of kidney disease, blood work results, medications, additional medical conditions and other dietary needs. We hope this updated site will continue to be your go to resource to support you on your kidney journey.
