Construction at Foodlink's new Community Kitchen.

Construction at Foodlink’s new Community Kitchen.

One month ago, Foodlink celebrated the groundbreaking of its new Community Kitchen. Dozens of community members, stakeholders and local officials joined us for a celebratory “apple-slicing” to mark a significant moment in our organization’s history.

So, what’s happened since then? We’d like to share a brief progress report and some photos as we hope to do this each month while the kitchen is under construction this summer.

Since the news conference was held May 11:

  • The framing of walls has begun
  • All equipment has been ordered
  • Asbestos abatement is completed
  • Plumbing is well underway

In the photo below, the Community Kitchen’s future Packaging Room is seen in the back. This is where food will be boxed, bagged and put into cases. To the left of that will be our walk-in cooler.

We’re excited to share future images as walls go up, equipment is installed and our Community Kitchen comes to life. See you next time!

The framing of walls has begun at the Community Kitchen. In the back, you'll see the future Packaging Room.
