Summary

Our cooks work hard to provide nutritious meals to hundreds of students daily. Their ability to do this will improve with the addition of a kitchen hood ventilator. This hood will remove grease, combustible materials, smoke, odors, and heat from the kitchen, leading to a cooler, fresher, and healthier work atmosphere. It will also benefit our students by improving the hygiene of the kitchen, leading to even cleaner food. Three quotes from local businesses indicate this will cost us $1,150.

Challenge

While our cooks are happy and productive employees who are able to feed our many students a nutritious snack and lunch each day, their work environment could be improved. Right now, they only have a few ceiling fans to handle the smoke, grease, and heat that results from their cooking. This results in a hot and smokey kitchen with grease accumulating on the ceiling beams and walls, which must be cleaned regularly. This takes time away from cooking food.

Solution

A kitchen ventilation hood will be able to remove grease, heat, smoke, odors, and combustible materials from the air in the kitchen as our cooks work. This will lead to a cleaner, more hygienic kitchen, as well as a cooler, fresher, and safer work environment for our cooks. All of this will result in better and higher-quality food for our students.

Long-Term Impact

We've received three quotes from local businesses, and have determined we can purchase and install this ventilator hood for approximately $1,150. We expect this purchase and installation to function in our kitchen for many years, providing our cooks with a cleaner, fresher, and safer work environment for a long time. We believe this is a worthy, long-term investment in our employees' and students' health and well-being.
