Our friends at First Baptist Church of Doraville let us use their big kitchen for group meals and have been very helpful with that. We just have to make sure that we leave the place absolutely spotless. I usually suggest that we give them a love offering for their utilities as well, but that’s up to you. Several of our missions have kitchen facilities, but if you’re cooking for a big group it’d be better to use FBC Doraville. You can call Renee Glass at 770-457-0244.
Please contact Ashley at 404-358-6766 if you need any assistance.
