work

Job creation and small business support are two of the ways our organization supports local economic development. At Millstone Kitchen, we provide the resources and equipment food entrepreneurs need to get to work. 

Eat

Our current programs create opportunities to build impactful relationships around growing and sharing food. The neighboring restaurant and brewery at the Old School are passionate about creating excellent food and beverage offerings for the NRV. 

Grow

Our gardens provide space and opportunity for community members to garden, take classes, attend potluck suppers and volunteer. We are excited to have a learning and service environment that promotes the growth of healthy food and dynamic community.
