Santa came early to the Brisben kitchen! During the week of November 16 a brand new Bakers Pride multi-rack convection oven went into meal service in the Brisben kitchen. In this case the real Santa Claus was the group of contributors to Brisben's “matching fund” drive. This brand new convection oven cost a few thousand dollars, and we’re counting on it to serve for a decade! The matching fund drive donations also supported replacement of the commercial HVAC unit heating/cooling the kitchen, as well as other repairs and center operations. Thank you to our faithful supporters and to the coordinators and volunteers who serve in the meal program. Also, thank you to Frank Vitiello for his expertise and help in acquiring the oven.
