Please Help Fund the Demonstrations that Feed Education! HERE

(Hope & Main depends on contributions from donors like you for 20% of our operating budget)



In just two years we have held over 400 classes in our demonstration kitchen. Including cooking lessons for little chefs and big ones, food demonstrations for children and seniors; and classes in nutrition, gardening and healthy food preparation for the entire community.

Every time we have a market at Hope & Main we offer demonstrations, tricks and tips about how to prepare local, seasonal food.

We don’t learn about food by reading labels in the supermarket. We learn by being in a conversation with the farmers, fishermen, bakers, artisans, chefs, nutritionists and all of the passionate food educators who lead classes in our kitchen.

For the price of one cup of coffee YOU can make a real difference and help Hope & Main– Rhode Island’s only non-profit food business incubator– to strengthen our local food system. 

Hope & Main, a 501c3, relies on the generosity of foundations and individuals to deliver our programs. Your contribution this holiday season is fully tax-deductible, will help to expand to our mission of strengthening the local food system, and will continue to support the dreams of men and women devoted to crafting local food products for the Rhode Island community.
