Thank you for your interest in offering meals to assist Off the Grid and the City of Oakland in the Oakland Great Plates Delivered program. Before moving forward, we ask that you please review the information below.

How we Evaluate Vendors:

This is a rolling application, and all vendors will be evaluated by Off the Grid before being on-boarded to the program. Food vendors will be accepted to the program on a first-come, first-serve basis based on the program’s cuisine needs.

Applicants will need to meet the below needs to be accepted:

  • Need to be able to start service within three (3) business days if chosen
  • Meet standard dietary restrictions
  • Serve Lunch and Dinner 1-3 times per week
  • Offer a pickup location in the City of Oakland
  • Valid Health Permit

Next Steps:

Applicants can expect a response on their status of the program within 5 business days. Please do not reapply or solicit if the response time is delayed.

Note: Vendor food will not need to be tasted before being onboarded to the program.
