Virginia’s cottage food and home food processing laws make mobile kitchens a possibility for a catering start-up. Some of the restrictions on home operated food businesses, such as no pets in the home or not allowing the commercial preparation of meals containing meat, can discourage someone from turning their grandmother’s prize recipes into a business. The shortage of commercial kitchens in some communities might be another obstacle. Depending on local laws, mobile kitchens from CMK can be a solution to becoming part of Virginia’s $16.8 billion restaurant industry.
Community food programs
In 2015 Feeding America determined that 10-percent of Virginians did not have reliable access to sufficient, affordable, and nutritious food. That percentage climbed to 15-percent in cities. Virginia has several active community food programs operating throughout the state, focusing on delivering nutritious food to those in need and in education to help create sustainable food systems, access to food and better understanding about nutrition.
In a recent report, the Virginia Cooperative Extension points out that the growing demand for locally produced food has created opportunities for communities and entrepreneurs in the areas of food preparation, food processing, and innovative educational approaches.
Heavy rain and snow, record high and low temperatures, tornadoes, hurricanes and flood and wind damage are too familiar to Virginians.
In May 2018 Virginia received $2,378,817 as a result of a severe winter storm in January 2016. In the two years since then Virginia experienced heavy flooding in 2017 and a severe storm in April 2018.
Mobile kitchens play an important role in feeding both survivors and relief crews in the aftermath of natural disasters. Along with mobile kitchens, CMK supplies portable showers, refrigeration and freezer units and generators to provide full support for disaster relief.
There is much more to Virginia than natural disasters. One of the original 13 colonies, the state has a population of 8.47 million. Virginia stretches along the Atlantic coastline and reaches from the Chesapeake Bay to the Appalachian Mountains. Home to many historic sites, including Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, the Jamestown Settlement and Colonial Williamsburg, 166 miles of the Appalachian Trail also pass through Virginia.
Virginia state and national parks are rich with camping, hiking and backpacking opportunities. The feral ponies in Grayson Highlands State Park are an international attraction. Virginians celebrate their lifestyles with frequent fairs and festivals celebrating history, arts and crafts, music and performing arts, food, beer, wine and moonshine.
