Grant Request Summary

We are seeking a grant to enhance the output of Soulfully Good's Kitchen by installing an improved ventilation / hood system to enable us to expand available cooking options. We are currently limited to induction only / baking as we can't use direct heat methods without a hood. This would enable us to grill and saute, etc. expanding our food output and options. We would install two grab and go coolers to provide additional prepared food options during busy times. Having both increased cooking and merchandising options would better enable us to serve both the residents of and visitors to Woodstock.

Project Budget

$20,000 - $24,999

Desired Grant Amount

$10,000 - $14,999

Other Funding Sources

It would be funded by the proceeds of the cafe.

Project Timeframe

By the end of April 2022 (In time for the summer season).

How will this project benefit the economic and community development of Woodstock?

We would be able to expand offerings in the cafe beyond the current offerings of salads and paninis. This would enhance the dining options in town and keep visitors in the downtown (shopping) area for a longer period of time as a large part of the new offerings would be enhanced grab and go options which lend themselves to a picnic in one of the town parks.
