School kitchens getting upgrades
Kitchen facilities throughout the Okanagan Skaha School District are in line for upgrades thanks to $17,500 in grant money from the B.C. government.
The following awards were announced at last week’s school district board meeting:
Kitchen renovation at Giant’s Head Elementary ($8,000); Community kitchen upgrade at Naramata Elementary ($1,500); installation of sanitizing dishwasher at West Bench Elementary ($5,000); purchase of refrigerators for community breakfast and lunch programs at five Penticton schools ($3,000).
Ron Shongrunden, the district’s secretary-treasurer, said the grants were provided under the School Community Connections program, the aim of which is to boost community usage of school facilities.
