SOS juice also supports food businesses, creating commercial kitchens focused on food recovery.
We work with new co-op commercial kitchens and/or create a network of existing kitchens able to wash, refrigerate, and prepare food to be sold. This is especially important for entrepreneurs in the expanding farmer's market and food truck business, and organizations that forage, salvage, and/or redistribute food from waste streams.
We already have a few business on board to donate their food bi-products, and churches, for example, who are able to offer certain hours of operation and refrigeration for this effort.
Phat Beets, an ally food justice organization, is apart of a Community Kitchen Co-op called Crossroads Cafe, that is a base for products made from farmers who want to produce food to be sold and/or prepared via the kitchen.
Oakland Peace Center, formerly known as First Christian Church, has opened its kitchen so that we can store food and prepare our juices that we make for markets, feasts and cleanses.
