The current kitchen in the Amelia Brown Building was built over 40 years ago. It has no handicapped accessibility and doesn’t include the ergonomically correct features necessary for our student population.
Renovating the teaching kitchen area at VBAS and creating a handicapped accessible, ergonomically correct and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant kitchen will provide handicapped accessible work spaces, equipped and outfitted with easily maintained surfaces and user friendly appliances. This renovation will facilitate teaching, learning and the practice of healthy food preparation techniques that are easily transferred to the home kitchen. The new kitchen facility will be a teaching space with an easy flow allowing for both small and large group instruction.
