[LIBERTY] – The new Entrepreneurial and Teaching (EaT) Kitchen will have its official grand opening and ribbon-cutting on Friday, January 30 at 12:00 noon. Developed by Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCE), the kitchen is located at the Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.
The EaT Kitchen is a licensed facility that offers professional steam injection ovens, refrigerators, freezers, mixers, food processors, work tables and other equipment in a newly constructed commercial and teaching environment.
“Incubator community kitchens, like the EaT Kitchen, make it financially possible for start-up food manufacturers to take advantage of available commercial kitchen space while growing their business,” said Colleen Monaghan, Executive Director of CCE.
In addition, Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County can provide assistance in product development with the Northeast Food Venture Center at Cornell University in Geneva, NY.
Funding and support for the kitchen have come from Community Facilities Grants secured through the USDA, the Liberty Community Development Corporation and Sullivan Renaissance with assistance from several community partners.
A light lunch will be provided by Natural Valley Kitchen of Jeffersonville at the opening.
For more information and to make reservations for this celebratory event, the public and press are invited to call CCE at 845-292-6180 or email Maria Grimaldi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
