Are you a food business operating in a shared-use kitchen? Do you want to shape how USDA programs support shared-use kitchens?
The Food Corridor’s latest collaboration is with Colorado State University and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service on a nationwide survey of food businesses operating out of shared-use kitchens. These survey findings will help pave the way for establishing additional federal resources for food businesses and kitchens like yours!
The Food Corridor has a long history of contributing their expert industry knowledge to federal grants and research projects that support the growth of the budding shared-kitchen community. These projects included the development of a Shared Kitchen Toolkit for starting a new kitchen, policy reports, industry updates, and our current partnership on the USDA Local Food System Response to COVID-19 project. You can learn more about all these projects here.
If you are a food business operating in a shared-use kitchen, you have the opportunity to participate in this survey effort to grow our understanding of businesses like yours and share that information with decision makers! The survey should only take 15-20 minutes to complete.
If you are a kitchen, please share this survey opportunity with your clients and members and encourage their participation! Incentives will be offered to client kitchens who recruit five or more food businesses who complete the survey! Let’s Go!
Please direct any questions to the survey coordinator, Hailey Edmondson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
