    Finishing Kitchen

    Aerial Rendering of the Hillcrest Kitchen  


    Hillcrest Elementary and Middle School currently uses the Multi-Purpose Building at Hillcrest as a makeshift kitchen, serving pre-packaged food delivered to the school.


    The scope of the Hillcrest Elementary and Middle School Finishing Kitchen project is to construct a new standalone Cafeteria Building with a fully equipped Finishing Kitchen.


    The service line will include a hot meal cooked in the new finishing Kitchen, a self-service salad bar, and chilled milk.
