The Community Hub Features:
The POK is an initiative of Hudson River Housing to revitalize Poughkeepsie’s Middle Main Street district, and to provide food entrepreneurs and start-ups with an affordable space to develop and grow their business. With 3,000 square feet of combined cooking, preparation, and storage space, POK is designed to meet the kitchen needs of the Hudson Valley’s food entrepreneurs. It is well suited for caterers, food truck operators, retail or wholesalers, cooking or nutrition instructors, or food concept developers, or for chefs to use it as a pop-up restaurant space to pilot a new concept. Located in the heart of the Hudson Valley, surrounded by culinary institutions, local farms, food businesses, and diverse ethnic cultures, the POK hopes to harness our collective love of food and to build community pride and connectedness.
