Kitchen Improvement Committee
Since the kitchen is certified, we need to follow certain regulations, so we ask that you use the following guidelines when putting on an event or even hosting coffee hour:
~ Put back everything where you took it from;
~ Be cautious when putting garbage into the trash cans (a lot of food was found under the beverage center to include whole pieces of cake; we all know what that can invite!!);
~ Mark everything you put in the refrigerator and bring it home when you are done with your event;
~ Mark all plates and containers you bring into the kitchen (this includes if you bring in items for a reception);
~ No kitchen items are to leave the premises;
~ Do not bring in any pots, pans, dishes, utensils or other "gifts" into the kitchen without prior approval. If you want to see something added in terms of cooking equipment, please make a monetary donation and we will purchase items that are commercial grade (not residential grade);
~ All kitchen events need to have one person who will communicate with the "on-call" Kitchen Committee member. That person will be the responsible party and will ensure that all rules are followed.
After each event the committee will be coming in to look at the kitchen. All expired food will be thrown out and all items that don't belong in the kitchen will be removed (including personal plates, vases, cook wear, etc. - that is why you need to put your name on all your items). If you bring it in for a church event, please take it home.
