Why are you interested in becoming a Trustee?
La Cocina's mission is to provide resources and opportunities to entrepreneurs so that they can make a living doing what they love to do.

What is the mission of your organization?
The mission of La Cocina is to cultivate low-income food entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their businesses by providing affordable commercial kitchen space, industry-specific technical assistance and access to market opportunities.
