The CDP will soon have the capacity to feed as many as 1,000 students three meals a day. 

That’s twice the number of students it can currently accommodate.

The increased capacity is the result of an extensive expansion of the primary kitchen at the Center, which is located inside the Noble Training Facility. The kitchen had covered approximately 2,500 square feet. Once the roughly $3.5 million project is complete, in early March, the kitchen will span approximately 5,000 square feet.

It will also include all the amenities one would expect to find in a state-of-the-art kitchen, to include walk-in freezers and coolers, meal prep areas, and contemporary appliances.

“We’re excited about what the improved kitchen will bring to the center – both to the cooking staff and to students,” say CDP officials.
