Shared-Use Community Kitchen

 Out of the Garden Project’s shared-use community kitchen is open for business!

Have you ever thought of making money cooking or baking?

Do you have a family recipe that you think others would love as well?

Check out our shared-use kitchen.

The kitchen is open to entrepreneurs interested in a part-time business making and marketing jams, jellies, vegetables, sauces, breads, etc. Out of the Garden Project (OOTGP) is  hoping to create an opportunity for those in low income areas to find a way of helping their situation by using our community kitchen at 3910 Clifton Road. We want to find new food entrepreneurs who may not have considered selling their product at the Greensboro Farmer’s Market or once a month at our Clifton Road location.

Our multi-organization partnership specifically continues to expand working to help those in poverty, as well as the funding for the community kitchen provided through a USDA grant.

Everyone who uses the kitchen must be certified through a Safe Plate class. The classes are offered at the Cooperative Extension Office.

For more information about the kitchen, contact our Community Kitchen Coordinator Candice Bangham using the form below, or call 336.430.6070 ext. 3 (you may also call to schedule a tour). To apply or find out more about our partnership, please visit

  • We will be accepting more applications from August 1st – September 1st 2017!
