Foodservice Equipment Reports


Equipment dealers and manufacturers are among the companies lending a hand to communities and organizations during the long, hot summer of 2011. Four recently donated foodservice equipment through the “Today” show’s annual “Lend a Hand” traveling charity campaign. Community Kitchens of Birmingham, Ala., a nonprofit organization dedicated to feeding the hungry, received a visit from the show’s Al Roker and some new equipment and supplies for its kitchen. Local dealer Birmingham Restaurant Supply provided steel tables, knives, bowls and roasting pans. Equipment was donated by three manufacturers: Baxter contributed a hybrid convection oven; Hobart donated a slicer, salad dryer, mixer and food processor; and Scotsman Ice Systems donated and installed two new nugget ice machines. “Lend a Hand” now in its 10th year, raised a record-breaking $7 million in donations so far for this year’s trip.  It began in ’02 as a way to jump-start smaller, lesser-known charities that lost donations as money was shifted to September 11 philanthropic efforts.
