F.A.R.M. Needs Kitchen Items PDF Print

From salt and pepper shakers to soup kettles and a commercial refrigerator, gently used kitchen items are needed and welcomed by F.A.R.M Cafe as it prepares for its April opening. The pay-what-you-can community café is releasing its wish list, which contains items community members may have and no longer use,

or are willing to purchase from area thrift stores. Area businesses may also have the commercial-size items needed.  “It doesn’t have to be new,” said Board of Directors President Renee Boughman. “In fact, we encourage the concept of reuse and recycling. Part of the fun and community aspect of this venture is that our glasses and silverware can be mismatched and our larger items will have come from other businesses.”  One local restaurant has already donated 17 boxes of old dishware, and another business has contributed two computers and other office items.  Other items on the wish list are: 

office safe
desk calculator
computer printer
napkins and paper towels
hand towels
large kitchen spoons
wooden spoons
