After months of work and setbacks due to weather, LFD's Culinary Arts training kitchen is permitted and functional. The completion of the kitchen is just one of the steps towards the expansion of programming and services offered by LFD to Lawrence young people.
When the final permits were issued on Monday morning, Culinary Arts Coordinator, David Wilmer, was finally able to start preparing meals for the YouthBuild and Lawrence Youth Team participants; and preparing participants for a career in food services.
"Its great to finally get this space up and running. I am excited to be able to share a craft that I love with Alterantive Youth Development Program participants."
The kitchen was built by the amazing LFD facilities team with support from a number of funders, including the City of Lawrence Department of Community Development, the Moselely Foundation, and the Walmart Foundation.
