Supporting small businesses

Rental Information

Our Central Kitchen provides a base of operations for local food-focused small businesses. It is available for rent during much of the day, evenings, and weekends. The kitchen is appropriate for food trucks, caterers, bakers, and entrepreneurs! As space permits, our kitchen is also available for one-time and long-term tenancy.  

Located at 4308 Redwood Highway #100 in San Rafael, the Central Kitchen is a 2,000 square foot commercial kitchen, one of only a few in Marin County.  When not in use for our programs, we rent space to entrepreneurs and nonprofits that need a commercial kitchen. We also serve as the commissary for local food trucks. We welcome inquiries. 

The kitchen is available for use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and includes weekends. Please note that a Community Action Marin representative is on site just 6am – 2pm, Monday – Friday.
