The Kitchen will provide a broad platform for Extension’s educational programming in the areas of agriculture, nutrition and youth development, and will also provide local producers with a commercial kitchen environment for light food processing and development of value-added products. The kitchen is also available for rent to vendors with other food businesses, such as caterers, bakers, food trucks and more. The space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The facility is fully equipped with cookware and utensils as well as variety of specialized equipment.
