At Oak Harvest Kitchen, we bring together healthy eating, local sourcing, and regenerative jobs. Our menu features local, sustainably grown fruits & vegetables, and is free of processed junk. Our meals nourish your body, and also create job opportunities for community members seeking second chance employment.

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


Through the Re-Generate Opportunity Program, we provide formerly justice involved community members and people with employment barriers, training and second chance employment opportunities.


The Re-Gen provides trainees hands-on training and mentorship in food safety, kitchen skills, customer service and hospitality, and essential technologies used in food-service and the workplace. trainees gain additional learning inside live kitchens - at partner food-based businesses- to build skills experience to add to their resumes. ​


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.

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.


Oak Harvest Kitchen's menu features sustainable produce, sourced from local farmers that steward the land on family farms located within a 150 mile radius of our kitchen.


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

MANDELA PRODUCE DISTRIBUTION - that shares our vision for supporting socially disadvantaged sustainable growers and a thriving planet.
