Share | Kitchen

If you have been following our active Twitter stream, you'll know by now that mo foods is evolving.  Our adventures this past year have led us from tapping our local resources to create tasty products, towards becoming one of those very resources for the greater SF Bay Area food community.  In our search for a commercial kitchen with which to expand mo foods and legally sell at the underground markets (SF Underground and New Taste Marketplace), we realized that there currently just aren't very many options.

We'll give a hearty shout-out to those that exist and are already supporting many of our vendor friends:  Eclectic Cookery in the Hunter's Point Shipyard, La Cocina incubating low-income vendors, even the Artisan Kitchen in Richmond has a lovely open warehouse.

Into this mix we add our new project, Share | Kitchen.  This space will be a food community hub, offering a commercial kitchen for rental, pop-up dinners, cooking classes, and food justice workshops.  We are developing relationships with local farmers and hope to be able to house a monthly CSA box distribution site and seasonal ingredient sources for our vendors and chefs, exemplifying the farm-to-table stream.

Right now we're refining our business plan and talking to investors as we look at potential locations.  Would you like to join us on this adventure?  Shoot us an email at mofoods, and stay tuned!
