Our blank canvas is coming to life.
Foodlink’s Community Kitchen began decades ago as a vision of founder Tom Ferraro. In May, we broke ground inside what was, essentially, a 28,000-square-foot empty room at our Mt. Read headquarters. It was an exciting moment, but one still needed a powerful imagination to picture a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen.
Today, our blueprint is starting to leap off the page. We have walls. And where we don’t have walls, we have framing that will soon become more walls. Other notable updates since the last progress report include:
– Installation of the HVAC & duct work
– Framing of 90% of the walls
– In-wall plumbing and electrical work is underway
– Dry walling has begun
– Construction of our coolers (this week)
– Value-Added Processing equipment will be built and shipped to Foodlink (next few weeks)
The fall can’t get here soon enough! Check back with us next month for another update.
