Washtenaw County Shared Use/Incubator Commercial Kitchen Interest Survey
On behalf of the Washtenaw County Board of County Commissioners, the Office of Community and Economic Development is exploring developing a food system workforce development program and commercial kitchen incubator with the expressed desire to:
1) Improve the economic climate in the county by fostering agri-business economic development and creating accessible opportunities for food-based entrepreneurs;
2) Provide training and jobs for chronically unemployed workers in a low-skill, meaningful job in the growing agribusiness and food service sector, with opportunities to advance into other full-time employment opportunities; and
3) Improve health and nutrition outcomes for local low-income residents through the production of and access to local food.
To help us identify needs and opportunities for a commercial kitchen and kitchen incubator facility, we ask that you take a few minutes to respond to this CONFIDENTIAL survey. You will also be able to receive information as we move forward with this project by supplying your contact information.
Thank you for your help; we look forward to hearing from you.
