Do you want to see, taste, smell, and utilize a community-owned and -operated commercial kitchen in Oakland? We need all hands on deck!

In particular, we are looking for either a General Contractor or a set of contractors to spearhead construction, plumbing, electrical, appliance, and other key roles involved in building out a large commercial kitchen in an 85-year old building.

We are also looking for donations of working commercial kitchen appliances - see our kitchen equipment list for details.

Finally, monetary donations and/or fundraising help is sorely needed! A commercial kitchen is an expensive project, and our initial crowdfunding campaign raised only about a quarter of what we will need in total. To donate, visit https://omnicommons.org/donate.


Planning meetings with our architect are currently underway (as of August 2018), organized ad-hoc via the kitchen mailing list.

If you'd like to help out, you can join the mailing list here: https://omnicommons.org/lists/listinfo/kitchen

  • After many months of regular and not-so-regular meetings and planning jams, outreach to community members for input and feedback, we had drafted a detailed budget and equipment list. In June of 2018, we hired James Gallagher as our principal architect to guide us through the planset and permitting process.
