Kids & Kitchen! I visited this fun new Chico shop the other day and found lots of great kitchen gadgets as well as unique gift items. Artfully displayed tea towels, ceramics, oils, handmade items and more nearly jump off the shelves, screaming to go home with you. Best of all, 100% of the profit generated at Kids & Kitchen benefits programs for those with developmental disabilities like autism, cerebral palsy and Down’s Syndrome.
This is the sister shop of The Little Red Hen Nursery (corner of 8th & Wall Street downtown Chico; click here for a short video tour). It was the 1997 brainchild of indefatigable Executive Director Teresa Wolk Hayes, who became a crusader in raising awareness and funds for autism research following her son’s diagnosis.

Visit Kids & Kitchen at 959 East Avenue (the former site of Cathy’s Sew ‘n Vac), just east of Cohasset Rd, and consider making this your FIRST stop next time you go gift-or-kitchen shopping!
