Better Storage = Better Client Service

THE MEN’S MISSION kitchen is a busy place. Thanks to the hard working staff and several volunteers, they serve approximately 150 people three meals per day plus snacks. That is a lot of food, and a lot of dishes.

We would like to thank three donors for providing dignity to clients through an upgraded kitchen renovation: General Dynamics Land Systems – Canada (GDLS-C), Westminster College Foundation and an anonymous donor. The upgrades included an expanded and reorganized storage room, a sorting table and upright freezers.

Kitchen Renovation“This style of freezer is easy to use and easy to clean. We now have the freezer and storage space to accept more donations and to rotate food properly for better efficiency,” said Food Services Manager Debrann pictured second from left with Gordon (Director of Shelters) at left, and Emily and Doug from GDLS-C.

Donations in kind from our community are vital in helping to deliver nutritious meals to our clients; sometimes a meal at the Men’s Mission is the only food a client will have in a day. When food donations arrive, they need somewhere to go that is accessible and follows safe food handling guidelines. Having ample, properly climate-controlled, clean storage space helps extend the shelf-life of our donations, making them stretch further for longer use and less waste.
