FEEDing Madison's local food culture

Madison Noteworthy's Mike Victorson interviews Adam Haen, founder of Food Enterprise & Economic Development (FEED) Kitchens, shared-use kitchens that are helping to incubate Madison's food culture. The FEED Kitchens facility includes five commercial kitchens, with specialized equipment for baking, produce preparation and processing, deli prep, and meat processing. The facility is available for rent by the hour so that food businesses and individuals seeking to sell food to the public can have a legal place to prepare their food. There's also a training kitchen available for non-profit groups and cooking teachers. This training kitchen doubles as a community use kitchen for anyone who wishes to do personal cooking or baking on a larger scale, such as holiday baking with friends, canning and preserving produce, or making meals in bulk.

Along with enhanced responsiveness and braking, users will use and strengthen shoulder and back muscles neglected by standard push wheeling. Visit RoWheels.com.
