At Oak Harvest Kitchen, you can eat anything you want and feel good about it.

At Oak Harvest Kitchen (OHK) we prepare food that nourishes your body, creates second chance employment opportunities, and supports local farmers. We make food that tastes good, and feel good. Our dishes are vegetarian, vegan, homemade, and have no added sugar, soy, or gluten.

OUR TEAM

Oak Harvest Kitchen provides formerly justice involved community members, and people with employment barriers, the training they need in order to gain skills for second chance employment opportunities.

 

Trainees receive hands-on training and mentorship in food safety, kitchen skills, customer service and hospitality, and essential technologies used in food-service and the workplace. Participants also train inside live kitchens - at partner food-based businesses- to build skills and experience to add to their resumes. ​

 

Regenerate Opportunity Program graduates either stay on as part of our kitchen team or gain employment through partner food businesses, ready and committed to providing dignified job opportunities.

ABOUT US

MP Logo-full-color.png

We are an Oakland born and grown not for profit business.

Oak Harvest Kitchen is owned by Mandela Partners, a non-profit organization with a 15 year history of increasing access to healthy foods, good jobs, and wealth building opportunities throughout the East Bay.

LOCALLY SOURCED, SUSTAINABLY GROWN

Our menu features local sustainable produce sourced from family farms located within a 150 mile radius of our kitchen.

 

By centering produce, we are able to drive our vision to support the economic viability of the under-resourced growers who steward the land and a thriving planet.​

 

To help us with this effort, we source a majority of our produce through our partner food hub
