I’m looking forward to celebrating our 11th Annual Anniversary Fundraiser on Saturday, November 4th. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. beginning with the Silent Auction, appetizers, and no host bar (beer & wine). Dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m. Malori and the kitchen crew will prepare an amazing Tri-tip dinner and a special dessert for the evening! I’m looking forward to seeing you.
Through the American Rescue plan I applied for a grant. We received $65,000 for kitchen upgrades. We purchased new convection ovens, gas range, food processor, meat slicer, can opener, pots, pans, silverware, microwave, worktable, mini fridge, and a deep fryer.
The process of applying, ordering equipment, and getting the numerous permits took quite a while before we got things going. Since the building is a County building, we needed an Environmental Health Permit, Building Department Permit and County Approval. I also needed to register with the Department of Industrial Relations and there were additional charges for Prevailing wages. Ugg!! I learned a lot of ridiculous rules throughout the process. I started the project in April and finally finished October 23rd.
Even though we are almost to the finish line, we have a few more steps. We need a final inspection to get signed off with both Environmental Health and Building Department.
Overall, Malori and the crew are very happy with the end results. More oven space and more burners, all for making meals more efficient.
Thank you everyone for being patient with us through all the hiccups we have endured with this project.
