Palomares-St. John's Catalyst Kitchen
A commercial kitchen for the community.
The Palomares-St. John’s Catalyst Kitchen is a commercial kitchen located at St. John's Lutheran Church that neighbors can rent from the Palomares Social Justice Center. The kitchen can be rented by the hour and is an initiative to motivate our community to start a business and obtain official certification for the handling and selling of food. Additionally, we provide individuals with the opportunity to obtain information on the certification process, starting a business, and general information on how to cook safely and by following sanitation codes.
