Long Description: The kitchen area in the Frisoli Youth Center is in dire need of renovating. Youth such as preteens and teens often have programs that require use of the kitchen to learn cooking techniques. The kitchen is in a bad state because some of the stove burners do not work and are popping out, making the stove dangerous and unsafe for youth and staff to use. Another problem is the sink. Dirt and food waste often piles on top of the sink because the drain does not work properly. The dishwasher is also unusable and needs to be replaced.In order to have a clean and safe environment for youth to prepare food, they need a kitchen that has working equipment to cook and store food and clean the space. This project can serve many Cambridge youth!
