The food storage facilities at Elizabeth House have been refurbished. Insulation, ventilation, a new UPVC door and a new floor covering have been installed in the garage, improving both hygiene and security for the food storage area, thanks to grants from Louis Baylis Charitable Trust and The Prince Philip Trust Fund.
We replaced four domestic chest and upright freezers with three upright, energy efficient commercial models and a commercial fridge, suitable for storing quantities of fresh fruit and vegetables. We also installed shelving in the garage for the storage of dry foods. Our non-food items are now stored separately in an external storage area.
Cook Tina Trice (pictured) said: “These new facilities are a huge improvement. The upright freezers make it so much easier for me to see everything and control the stock. The new fridge gives us loads of new space, so we can keep foods fresher for longer”.
