The commercial kitchen directory has moved. Please visit and share:
Background: Due to overwhelming interests and requests for commercial kitchen space in Toronto, we have developed a directory on available commercially-certified kitchens in the City. Offered by organizations and businesses (independent of Food Forward). These kitchens may be available for rent by the hour, day, or long-tem for food preparation and processing.
Click the map location for details, and contact an organization directly to discuss options for kitchen rental, find out more information, and see if the kitchen is currently certified and the right fit for your venture's purposes.
Many more community kitchens are available in Toronto (often in community, neighbourhood, and community health centres and Hubs), which are certified by Public Health for non-commercial purposes - see our Projects Hub. To learn more about inspected commerical kitchens and what you need to know to follow regulations, contact Toronto Public Health or at 416-388-7600.
Commercial kitchen rental agreements between food businesses and other organizations supports economic activity and income generation for small food enterprises to become viable, and helps create a more resilient food system.
