Work was completed at the end of January on the remodel of the Someone Cares Soup Kitchen in Costa Mesa, CA. RFMA member companies and individuals donated materials, equipment and services, as well as their own time to help us complete our first project of RFMA Gives.
We are so grateful for everyone’s support.
The work that was completed drastically improved the layout, flow, capacity and capabilities of Someone Cares, which serves over 600 hungry children and adults per day in the Costa Mesa area. A new walk-in freezer, dishwasher, ice machine, tilt skillet, and prep tables, in addition to added storage and redesigned serving line are just some of the improvements that have made a huge difference for the volunteers and the guests they serve; not to mention saving the soup kitchen thousands of dollars per month in operating expenses with a more efficient kitchen.
Located not far from where we held our RFMA 2011 annual conference, this is a legacy we were proud to leave behind. Many thanks to all who participated, with special thanks to Joe Robertson of Right Way Facility Services and the Adera Foundation, who led the effort.Reprinted from RFMA – The Dish, March 3, 2011
