RENOVATION & EXPANSION
It's official... WE'RE EXPANDING! Construction began at the very end of August on our renovation and expansion project. This project will more than double the size of our food services area including our kitchen and dining room. Once completed we will have a larger, more efficient kitchen, bigger dining room for increased seating, and a huge pantry to service our kitchen and food bank program.
We are excited to be under construction as this expansion has been much needed for years. Follow our progress and learn more by clicking here:
