In keeping with our mission, we have developed important programs and partnerships that further our goal of improving access to healthy, local food.
The Can-Do Kitchen is the area's only food business incubator and commercial kitchen. It supports food entrepreneurs by providing a low-risk environment, connecting to business-building resources, partnering with business counselors, hosting promotional tasting events, offering food safety training, facilitating wholesale ingredient orders, and more. We serve dozens of small food businesses and cooking classes and our kitchen is available for catering, cooking parties, cooking shows or video taping, workplace and team building exercises, product testing and staff training, and wherever your imagination leads!
Our urban educational gardening program empowers, engages and educates local youth and the larger community with hands-on learning opportunities. A garden is a great place for people to come together, learn to raise food, and understand the ecology of sustainable growing.
