Value-added food production has great potential for communities as well as individual entrepreneurs, in part, because food production can be profitable even at rather small scales. One key to smaller scale production success is shared equipment and space. There are many great examples of organizations that support food entrepreneurs begin, and find success, in their operations. In this webinar we bring two fabulous more-traditional examples to the fore: La Cocina in San Francisco and Union Kitchen in Washington, DC. You will hear the great impacts of these operations, as well as some of challenges, and details of actually running an incubator. We will also hear from The Food Corridor, a virtual food hub that connects food entrepreneurs to commercial kitchen space. The Food Corridor also oversees a community of practice of shared-use kitchens, and has created a useful Shared Kitchen Toolkit, a free guide to starting a new shared-use or incubator kitchen and managing the operations of it. Join us for a whirlwind tour of wealth creation and sovereignty through food! Click here to registerÂ
