What’s Cooking at the Community Kitchen? A Major Renovation

Colorado College’s Community Kitchen, one of the oldest student-run community kitchens in the nation, underwent a renovation this summer. Gay Victoria, director of the Center for Service and Learning, reports that the changes include:

  • Moving the dishwashing operation out of the kitchen and into side hallway, and adding a rinse station and stainless steel countertops and backsplash
  • Two new freezers and two refrigerators for storing food
  • An under-the-counter commercial dishwasher
  • New slip-resistant flooring in the dishwashing and kitchen areas
  • The removal of all upper cabinets and the installation of stainless steel shelving
  • A new warming oven to keep hot foods hot until served
  • A cold salad server to keep salads on ice until served
  • A new commercial microwave for warming
  • New hanging pot racks to keep pots organized
  • A commercial can opener
  • Two new commercial food disposals
  • New commercial faucets in the kitchen
  • A new hand-washing sink in the kitchen
