PROJECT:  “Kitchen and Dining Room Renovation and Remodel ”

The Salvation Army is working to meet the needs of the community through various programs and services, many of which involve food preparation and food service. They currently serve 80-150 meals a week to the local at-risk community. The current kitchen is too small and inadequate to properly meet the needs of the programming they would like to offer. Their project would completely renovate and remodel the kitchen and dining areas, making them more spacious with updated appliances and equipment. These upgrades would impact every program The Salvation Army       currently offers – from children’s summer camp, youth nutritional programs, emergency response, community food needs, and daily youth programming.
