Decked out in face masks, staff and family members stepped up to move everything out of South County and into the new space. Social distancing isn’t easy during a move, but they made it work! The health inspector even showed up in record time, giving the kitchen it’s stamp of approval to cook!
The focus then shifted to unpacking so the kitchen crew could get back to cooking meals for the following week. Thankfully, before the move started, Chef John and his team already had enough meals in the freezer for that first week’s delivery. These meals were delivered by staff, as part of our modified COVID-19 operations (more on that, and how you can help, here).
Now, the kitchen is up and running – and not a single meal delivery was missed! The kitchen crew is loving the extra space. For years, Chef John used a single 6 burner stove to cook meals for hundreds of homebound seniors each week. The new kitchen 6 times that! Imagine the possibilities.
