UO to replace cottages with central kitchen (2)
UO prepares 10,000 meals per day. The $8 million central kitchen will modernize equipment and double the amount of space available in the current core kitchen.
"The facilities that are there right now are old, they are aging and really need to be replaced," said Michael Griffel, director of University Housing. "Our goal is to continue to buy locally, to buy fresh, to buy organic, so this will allow us to make food from scratch using the cleaning possible approaches."
