Caridad Community Kitchen Expansion

Location: Tucson, AZ
Project Type: Addition
Budget: $1.6 MM

Providing more than a free meal to those in need, the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona’s Caridad Community Kitchen offers a culinary training program and full catering service that help thousands of people a year. With the growth of these programs, Caridad required more space to serve our community. Steps were taken and funds were raised to expand the kitchen another 5,000 square feet. Barker Contracting and SBBL Architecture were selected as the design team to create a functional space that would tie into the original building, seamlessly. Throughout construction, Caridad and the Community Food Bank continued to serve meals to those in need. With this expansion, Caridad will be able to produce 360,000 MORE meals per year to disburse to homebound seniors and senior centers.
