, work with local farms to increase access to fresh, locally produced foods in neighborhoods where residents have historically struggled to find healthy options.
Through culturally appropriate, prepared foods, Cassandria
and Jackson are providing a healthy alternative to fast food and corner stores.
"Before, we were bouncing around between different commercial kitchens," Cassandria
explains, "But CommonWealth Kitchen gave us a place where we could settle down and focus on producing food and building our business, not on finding kitchen space."
"The staff at CommonWealth Kitchen
is very in tune with the surrounding neighborhood and the needs so they know how to support our mission of cooking real food," says Cassandria
We all share information that otherwise we would not have access to," says Cassandria
"It's very helpful being around an organization, culture, staff, and community who really believe everybody deserves access to quality food and quality local jobs," says Cassandria
