Support the BJAMS Kitchen Project!
Make a difference this year by donating to the Bishop Marshall School Kitchen Project.
You may be wondering why the school kitchen needs your help? This year, due to the USDA’s grant of providing free meals to all students through the 2020-21 school year, we have seen a significant surge in providing daily breakfast and lunches for our BJAMS students. This has been a tremendous act of kindness and a much needed support for our families during these uncertain times, but it has also shown us that our kitchen is in major need of updating. A larger space is needed to provide a better kitchen flow for our staff and to accommodate all kitchen appliances. Our kitchen staff has limited movement in the current kitchen and we use separate storage areas for our multiple freezers. Larger appliances that can accommodate more meals are also needed as well as a dishwasher. Currently, all dishes are washed by hand and we use compostable trays instead of reusable trays and utensils.
We’ve been aware that our kitchen has been in need of an update, but with the surge of preparing 200 or more meals a day and feeding over 75% of our student body, it’s apparent more than ever that it’s time we do something now! Help us feed our school kitchen with support!
