Centralized Kitchen Project: Aging Nutrition Programs
Centralizing the cooking, serving and storing of food from one single commercial sized kitchen in Burnett County, as compared to operating out of 3 separate, small, inefficient kitchens, will provide enough cost savings to eliminate the current wait list for the Meals on Wheels and Congregate Dining programs, as well as serve the continuous influx of need that is forecasted.
The ADRC of NW WI is currently working towards a long-term partnership with two local townships in Burnett County to be able to renovate a portion of their building to centralize a kitchen. Their partnership would also allow long term use of this portion of the building. Because there are no grants available to support this kind of project, we are seeking donations from YOU, our very own community! Please consider helping us to serve our elderly populations in this great need to stay safe, independent and healthy!
Changes coming soon!!
These are donations that will be utilized for general operating expenses or for expenses that accompany specific events, programs and services to which there are not, or not enough, funding for. Examples may include event planning expenses such as food, decorations, and location. Or for equipment upgrades and maintenance or reimbursement to help our volunteers function to serve our elderly and disabled populations.
