Support Our Work
Spice Kitchen Incubator is continuously growing, enrolling ten entrepreneurs each fall and spring and graduating successful businesses like Bhutan House, Laan Na Thai, and Ahtti Korean Munchies. As our program sees more interest, both from the population we serve and the greater community, our needs change.
There are numerous different opportunities to support Spice Kitchen Incubator and the entrepreneurs served, and it is so easy!
Eat With Us! - Eating with us is one of the best ways you can show your support. Whether you want an event catered, you're a customer of Spice To Go, a farmer's market goer, or you follow the food trucks around each weekend your business is what fuels our programs.
Shop - Smith's Markets encourages its customers to support their local community through their Community Rewards program. Rewards members can donate 0.5% of their grocery bill to Spice Kitchen Incubator by enrolling their customer account in the Community Rewards program.
Volunteer - Lend a hand with your business expertise and skills, or spend a few hours helping to clean the kitchen and organize the warehouse. Use the form below to find out more on how you can volunteer.
We are always in need of dedicated volunteers! Currently, we are looking for:
Spice To Go Volunteers: Spice to Go is a popular offering and we need volunteers to help us keep things moving. Positions include Enhanced Support and Food Runner meaning that volunteers will assist by getting the food from the kitchen to the customer and once background checked can assist with payment processing. Signup to Volunteer with Spice To Go.
Graphic designer: you will be assisting a participant to create his or her new business logo. (2-5 meetings)
Deep Kitchen Clean: We are looking for 10-15 individuals (or a community group) to give our kitchen a good scrub during Farmer’s Market season!
