How do you verify Food Makers and Kitchen Hosts?

Mandatory ID Verification: Each Kitchen Host and Food Maker must complete a public profile, including a third-party ID verification process directly in our app via our partner, Persona. Makers are unable to request book a space and Hosts are unable to list their kitchens without finishing this step.

Optional Criminal Background Checks: Safety and transparency are essential to the success of the sharing economy. Kitchen Hosts can require Canadian Criminal Background checks in addition to ID verification if they have specific aspects of their space that call for additional security measures (i.e., a childcare centre is also housed in the building). In these cases, the Kitchen Host must also undergo a background check. While, in our experience, requiring a background check can be discouraging to some Makers, it is ultimately the Host's decision regarding who is allowed into their space(s).
