Visiting La Cocina: cultivating food entrepreneurs

Visiting La Cocina: cultivating food entrepreneurs

posted 10/12, 2013 by Rob Hopkins on Transition Culture

While in San Francisco, I visited La Cocina, a fantastic incubator for new food enterprises in the city and I project I have wanted to visit for years.  It describes its mission as being "to cultivate low income food entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their businesses by providing affordable commercial kitchen space, industry-specific technical assistance and access to market opportunities. We focus primarily on women from communities of color and immigrant communities. Our vision is that entrepreneurs gain financial security by doing what they love to do, creating an innovative, vibrant and inclusive economic landscape".
