What We Offer
Food Enterprise and Economic Development (FEED) Kitchens is a project of the Northside Planning Council of Madison.
The FEED facility includes five commercial kitchens, with specialized equipment for baking, produce preparation and processing, deli prep and meat processing. The facility is available for rent by the hour so that food businesses and individuals seeking to sell food to the public can have a legal place to prepare their food.
We also have a training kitchen available for non-profit groups and cooking teachers to use to teach food service and preparation skills so that people can get work in the food service industry, and can learn how to cook and process food for their own consumption. This training kitchen doubles as a community use kitchen for anyone who wishes to do personal cooking or baking on a larger scale, such as holiday baking with friends, canning and preserving produce, or making meals in bulk.
The FEED Facility also offers a conference room for rent by the hour, a shared office with computers and printers for use while renting the space, and dry, cold and frozen storage. For more information on all of the services available through FEED, please see the FEED User Handbook for Commercial Users and the FEED User Handbook for Casual Users.
