The newly completed commercial kitchen at our Clayton facility has provided a pathway for small producers and entrepreneurs to develop value-added products for market in a manner that meets all food-safety regulations and food health requirements.

It also allows agricultural producers and food entrepreneurs to begin food business without the high cost of developing individual certified kitchen space. In turn, the economic activity in the community is spurred with the production of locally produced food products that travel fewer miles to be placed on shelves for sale. The kitchen has been used in the past to develop maple syrup, barbecue sauces, veggie burgers, granola bars, grains, salsas, and a variety of other products.

For every $1 the Food Bank receives, we are able to distribute 4 meals.
