This holiday season, LAHIA is launching a fundraising campaign to expand and renovate its kitchen.
"For nearly 10 years, LAHIA has been the only place in Martin County where homeless men and women can get a well-cooked, nutritious meal six days a week," said Brenda Dickerson, LAHIA executive director. "We serve more than 500 meals every week and desperately need a larger and more efficient kitchen space."
Dickerson reports that a floor plan has been drawn up, professional restaurant designers have volunteered their help and an industrial strength stove and refrigerators are ready to install.
"We now need to raise additional funds to help us meet the construction costs and other expenses associated with a kitchen renovation of this size," Dickerson said. "Through the generosity and kindness of the Martin County community, we hope to meet our fundraising goal and complete the kitchen in the spring of 2017."
The floor plan below shows the size of the current kitchen, along with the size and location of a new, improved kitchen.

Twelve volunteers from BB&T spent Saturday, June 25, at Love and Hope in Action in Stuart. As part of BB&T's Lighthouse Project, the volunteers are dedicated to making the communities in which they live and work better places to be. Since the BB&T Lighthouse Project began in 2009, volunteers have completed more than 7,700 community service projects and provided more than 385,000 volunteer hours.
LAHIA would like to express our gratitude to Rorabeck's Plants & Produce, 1053 SE Indian Street in Stuart, for their ongoing generous contributions of produce for our daily meals. If you stop by Rorabeck's please thank them for supporting LAHIA.
