2019 Pricing
Taproot Kitchen is a non-profit entity that strives to be self-sufficient while serving the broadest segments of the community. Kitchen use fees are an important way to keep the kitchen doors open and the lights on. At the same time, we understand that some members of the community may find the cost of using the kitchen prohibitive. We are glad to consider a sliding scale or alternate arrangements.
