It's official - the 3rd floor kitchen has finally been installed! After months of fundraising, budgeting, purchasing, and installing, the far side of the third floor finally looks like a kitchen (instead of a haphazard storage space - see below). Big shout outs to Sonia, who took the reins on this project from the first budget draft, and to Krysta who spent the better part of last week cleaning out the space and getting everything put in its place. Our task now is to spend the next month promoting and planning classes to be ready to begin in early April.
A gigantic thank you to all of our unbelievable donors:
The Peterson Family
The Booe Family
The Zhou Family
Literally none of this picturesque spread below would be possible without you. We'll think of you every time we flip an egg or sauté fresh vegetables!
the sink/painted window/slight storage area before...
... and after! hey look, there are mountains back there!
beautiful spankin' new cookware
expertly matched cutlery (I bet you can guess who picked those out)
a spread of utensils, stove, knives, pots and pans, and so much more
