Our vision is to build a movement of healthy habits. One of the ways we do that is through education. Enter the Wolf Teaching Kitchen, a state of the art kitchen equipped with Wolf appliances, nestled right into the Bakke Recreation & Wellbeing Center. We believe that wellness encompasses both what you do physically as well as what goes on your plate. Here we empower students and members to create delicious, healthy meals that fuel their active lifestyle.

Kitchen Rental FAQ

How do I make a reservation?

All food events must complete the Rec Well reservation request at least six weeks in advance of the desired event date. Some rentals may also need to fill out the Temporary Food Event Permit form. At a minimum, fees for renting the kitchen include an hourly room rate and at least one hourly staff rate. Due to high demand for programming, availability for kitchen rental space is extremely limited.


What health and safety policies must be followed?

  • Kitchen staff have authority to make decisions about food preparation during an event if potential risk becomes apparent.
  • Participants must follow safe food practices as directed by kitchen staff.
  • Groups that violate policies of kitchen are subject to losing privilege of using the kitchen in the future
