Ten years ago, the Village of Hope opened and everything was bright, shiny and new, especially the kitchen! Over the years, the state-of-the-art equipment did its best and served us well, but understandably suffered wear and tear from providing thousands of meals each day, especially as we have taken on providing meals for our Chili Van outreach ministry and other shelters in Orange County.
Our friends at Imperial Commercial Cooking Equipment stepped up to graciously help us meet this need! I am so thankful to CEO Peter Spenuzza and the Imperial team for the generous donation of 11 items of commercial kitchen equipment! Items donated include griddles, charbroilers, double convection ovens, open burners, fryers, stands, casters, and hoses, all totaling to a donation of over $70,000 worth of equipment.
This is an amazing blessing to the Rescue Mission, and perfectly timed – with our expansion to include more beds at the Village of Hope, we are cooking for more people now than ever before!
Thank you again to Peter and the team at Imperial Commercial Cooking Equipment! We appreciate your support of the Rescue Mission and your heart to care for the Least, the Last, and the Lost!
