State approved kitchens for volunteers to cook for the Food Banks
Most of the Food Banks in Oregon can not accept home cooked or canned food. But food comes in heavy in certain seasons. They need a State approved kitchen that could have groups come in and make foods for food now being not accepted. example: home orchard apples are horrible, scabby and all as fresh food for give away, yet make great apple sauce, a product the Food Banks could hand out. Another one is the Federal Prison out in Sheridan gives produce, but it comes truck loads at a time. Canning carrots or incorporting them in stews or other dishes for a spread out year. What is needed is a building that can be made into a good non-profit kitchen and a volunteer coordinator. It could fit into backyard gardeners helping to large groups helping as a social good building activity.
The incubator part of this is that the kitchen could be used for business start ups, as many folks want to cook cookies and all that can sell. They need a State approved kitchen, a hard to find item.
I've heard that the Sherwood Senior Center kitchen is available for work like this- I believe it is on a fee basis and an MMT grant could underwrite a liability insurance policy and part-time food inspector.
