Community Food Innovation Center
A Community Kitchen
The Community Food Innovation Center (CFIC) was conceived by the Monongalia County Commission and its community partners with the basic philosophy of the old Navajo proverb: "Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you'll feed him for a lifetime".  Our project simply seeks to minimize food insecurity by "teaching more of our neighbors to fish". With this proactive approach, the Commission directs resources to eliminating the root cause, rather than symptoms of food insecurity.

Additionally, this state-of the-art "shared" kitchen is equipped with most appliances and tools needed for producing products or meals to be sold or served off-site. With increased demand as an event kitchen, the CFIC is also an option as an add-on with rental of the Showroom, if available.

The CFIC has the ability to operate 24-hrs, increasing accessibility and diversifying user groups and renters. The kitchen is a shared space including its equipment, small wares, coolers, and chemical products. A full list of kitchen equipment is available upon request.

Rates vary based on usage, please contact the Venue Manager for questions regarding the CFIC or to schedule a tour!
