Kitchens for Good has partnered with Salvation Army in leasing two of their commercial kitchen spaces at the Door of Hope Campus in Kearny Mesa to expand their Culinary Training program. HomeAid has been asked to help with the commercial kitchen design and renovations, as well as bringing the buildings up to current building code standards to include offices and classroom spaces. This project is in the planning and design phase. White Construction was selected as the General Contractor and tentative start date for construction is summer 2020. Kitchens for Good is refocusing their operations to expand meal production from 2,000 meals/week to 20,000 meals per week to aid in solving San Diego County’s food insecurity epidemic during and post COVID-19 pandemic with the renovation of these commercial kitchens.
