I am happy to report that It’s been a very busy and productive time for our board since our last Newsletter in September. We are meeting with banks, investors, granting agencies, and potential industrial kitchens. And everyone on the board is helping to make this possible. We are now focusing attention on educating food makers and the larger community of Cape Cod while we pin down a kitchen we can share with those in need. We feel we are closer than we have ever been to realizing this goal.
