Located in the heart of Hollywood, The Farmer's Kitchen will be a commercial teaching, processing and retail kitchen for the sale of prepared food and farm-fresh produce. The revenue from the Farmer's Kitchen will support nutrition education programs and provide job training in food preparation for Hollywood's low-income residents. As an extension of the Hollywood Farmers' market it will be a daily source of healthy, affordable food for Hollywood residents of all income levels.

"With rates of diabetes and obesity on the rise, a facility that teaches how to cook with fresh food as well as giving local farmers another outlet for their produce seems like a perfect solution," comments Terry August, owner of Fancifull Gift Baskets.
