Central Kitchen

The Central Kitchen is a project that will produce 35,000 healthy meals for the students of Oakland Unified School District. The project is a 43,000 sf centralized kitchen that has ADA accessible vegetable planters, bioswales to treat water on-site, and the entire project itself is an edible fruit garden, which has many fruit trees including olives, almonds, limes, pomegranates, and herbs. Central Kitchen is an educational garden that will teach kids how to propagate seeds in the greenhouse; transplant them to the vegetable gardens; harvest their own food; finally moving the product to an interactive small kitchen where kids will make their own meals. As OUSD alumni Angelina and Emmanuel are proud to have been part of this project that employed many Oakland residents and will continue to feed healthy meals to our immediate community.
