Moonlight Kitchens and Covid-19
Moonlight Kitchens office is OPEN for business but with tighter sanitation & safety requirements for clients. We are taking new applicants who will have to follow whatever new requirements the Health Dept. has in place as well. If you are sick please stay home.
Our current hours in the office are 10-4 MWF and by appointment.
Current kitchen availability is 7am-10pm seven days a week, and by arrangement.
The “normal” safety protocols include:
We are only scheduling ONE crew at a time in the building and allowing ½ hour between each shift. Please check the schedule to avoid other users.
For an expanded definition of our COVID-19 sanitation requirements please see our safety and sanitation page.
While Moonlight Kitchens is set up to accommodate commercial users, it’s also easy to use for non-professionals. The cooking equipment is “hurkier” than residential stuff which means food gets hotter or colder faster.
We are seeking food entrepreneurs and artisans who love the art of food. If you are looking for an inspiring home base to cook, bake, and create in a supportive environment Moonlight Kitchens is for you. We are particularly looking for people who want to source local and organic ingredients as a large part of their production philosophy. Missoula’s food scene is booming and we make every effort to help our new cooks thrive.
Moonlight Kitchens is designed for commercial cooking but individuals can use the kitchens for group cooking and canning, girls-night-out or a unique birthday party, and personal projects. Chefs can use the space to test recipes or create an intimate dinner.
We offer a variety of cooking classes to the public and collaborate with local businesses on regular “openings” that promote our cooks’ products. We also work with our local farmers to offer bulk purchasing and seasonal specials to reduce ingredient costs and improve flavor.
