About the Project
Food businesses have traditionally been a way for many striving immigrants and low-income families to gain an economic foothold. However, skyrocketing real estate and rental rates are making it difficult for these entrepreneurs to access commercial kitchen and restaurant spaces in South King County.
Spice Bridge provides the space and support to help these entrepreneurs launch and scale to successful local businesses. Spice Bridge will also provide a community hub—a space where people can gather to learn about and celebrate the community’s rich food traditions—when it is safe to open for indoor dining.
The 2,800-square-foot facility includes a commercial kitchen with four cook stations, four food retail stalls, and a community dining area. The space accommodates up to 20 food businesses that either rent retail stalls in the public dining area, or use the kitchen for off-site sales, such as catering and farmers markets.
Spice Bridge allows for expansion of FIN’s Food Business Incubator pilot program, which provides services including subsidized rent at a shared commercial kitchen, permit assistance, market channel development, and other business supports.
In addition to helping to create economic security for business owners and their families, Spice Bridge helps build food security in our community. The space supports FIN’s Tukwila Village Farmers Market, which makes fresh, local produce affordable and accessible for community members. Spice Bridge is also utilized for FIN’s community meals program, which has provided more than 8,000 no-cost meals for seniors and families in need.
Spice Bridge is located in Tukwila Village, a new mixed development with 400 new affordable and market-rate apartments managed by Sustainable Housing for Ageless Generations (SHAG), a nonprofit organization.
Building out the facility and installing kitchen equipment has cost about $1 million.
Communities of Opportunity and the Port of Seattle have provided support in the pilot testing, pre-construction needs, and program expansion. Taxpayers of Washington State contributed $392,000 from the state’s capital budget to support the project; the budget request was sponsored by Sen. Bob Hasegawa, and supported by dozens of local businesses, nonprofit organizations, and community leaders.
We continue to seek sponsors, and have launched a capital campaign to help raise the remaining funds. Would you like to support Spice Bridge? We invite you to:
- Make a gift online – donations of any size are welcomed.
- Join our crowdfunding campaign and help us spread the word.
- Contact us about naming opportunities – the new food stalls, kitchen, children’s play area, and “It Takes a Village” donor appreciation wall present opportunities to recognize contributors.
- Participate in our community art project – community portraits and other art installations grace the space.
