Maple Alley Inn - Kitchen Improvement Fund

Maple Alley Inn - Kitchen Improvement Fund

Maple Alley Inn serves healthy and sustaining meals in a comfortable and welcoming environment to Whatcom County residents experiencing hunger. Every week we serve breakfast on Tuesday morning and lunch on Wednesday and Thursday, focusing on nutritious high quality foods. A Maple Alley Inn community garden, grows organic vegetables that are a core part of the prepared meals. In 2015, Maple Alley Inn served 19,622 meals to 1,675 unduplicated guest, an 18% increase from 2014.

Due to this growing demand in our community, the current residential kitchen at Faith Lutheran Church is not adequate to keep up with demand. The Kitchen Improvement Campaign hopes to raise funds to replace the stovetop, oven, and refrigeration with upgraded commercial appliances and improve ventilation in the kitchen area. These improvements will significantly improve kitchen efficiency and safety for staff and volunteers.
