Hey folks, have a sec to help out some of our local trailblazers? As you may have heard, Iso Rabins of The Underground Market and The Wild Kitchen is trying to raise money for FORAGE KITCHEN, a coworking space for food designed to support people like the vendors from The Underground Market, but also give non-professionals access to professional equipment. There will be classes, workshops, beer brewing, a rooftop garden, a meat-curing room, a café, and a big kitchen. It will function as an incubator for new food businesses, from a shared-use kitchen and office space to equipment rental and business advice. Please check out his Kickstarter here to see how you can help. ForageSF is also seeking investors to raise the remainder of funds. Follow Forage on Facebook for future fundraising event updates.
And Anthony Myint of Mission Street Food, Mission Chinese Food, and Commonwealth wrote this blog post about his idea of opening a restaurant inside the San Francisco Food Bank as a way to raise more money for the nonprofit. Myint is applying for a small business grant from Mission: Small Business to try to make this dream a reality and is asking for your vote. Please log in and then search “Mission Chinese Food.”
