Community Kitchens Oakland

Community Kitchens is a collective of Oakland restaurants working to transform our industry to embed social impact into our business models to be a part of the solution addressing food insecurity in Oakland.   Our Mission is to ensure everyone in Oakland has access to a hot, nutritious meal every day.

Community Kitchens’ restaurant partners prepare meals in collaboration with over 10 community-based organizations that distribute and serve our meals to their clients.  Our meals go out daily to nourish the bodies and spirits of those forced to live on our streets, and to anyone else who struggles to feed themselves.  We work together on menu design to factor in cultural preferences and to ensure variety in the meals we provide.   These meals are used as a bridge for our community-based organizations to connect their clients with other public benefits programs and services.

We are currently providing 10,000 meals a month, not only feeding our unhoused community, but also supporting local restaurants and jobs during the pandemic.  Our core value is meals with dignity. As restaurants, we proudly serve the same meals that we serve our customers.

Stay tuned for our 2022 plans.  We will be leading a food revolution in Oakland and it will be delicious.
