Like the public library... but for tools

Kitchen Tool Library Opening Soon

Calling all food lovers! SE Portland residents are forming a kitchen tool lending library, Kitchen Share SE.

On Wednesday February 8th, from 6-8 pm, come to an Eat and Greet at Pyro Pizza and Potato Champion food carts, located at 12th and Hawthorne. The food carts will donate 20 percent of the proceeds from your dinner to help open Kitchen Share SE.

Going beyond the neighborly cup of sugar, Kitchen Share SE will be a place where community members can borrow tools and share in the joy of processing, preserving, and serving food. We hope to offer dehydrators, cider presses, canning equipment, ice-cream makers, food processors, bread makers, and more. We plan to grow into a community supported kitchen where we can share our culinary skills, nourish our bodies with healthy local food, and collaborate on projects.

This is a community directed initiative and we would love for you to share your input and get involved!  Join us for our next planning meeting, on Sunday February 5th at 6:30pm, at the People’s Food Co-op.
