The kitchen at Fuqua Hall was in desperate need of renovation. The cabinets were old and falling apart. There was not enough storage for dry goods and the refrigerators were overstocked. Though most of the men eat their meals at the cafeteria next door to the apartment building, there was no range in the kitchen for men to occasionally cook their own meals. Some would cook outside on a grill or on a hotplate.
Additionally, Fuqua Hall leaders thought that offering cooking lessons for the men would be a great service, but they had no range to do so. Overall, the kitchen needed a lot of work, including new cabinets, countertops, backsplash, flooring, and the addition of ventilation for a new range hood. Accompanying appliances include a new range, dishwasher, garbage disposal, refrigerators, and freezers.Project Donors
