Viking Donates a Range to Greenwood Interfaith Ministries Community Kitchen

Viking recently donated a Southbend Ultimate Range to the Greenwood Interfaith Ministries Community Kitchen. Viking originally donated a Viking 60" range to the Community Kitchen many years ago. We then replaced it with a commercial range. We updated the range at Dale Person’s request to a 60” Southbend Ultimate Range. Southbend is a part of Middleby Corporation.

Darcy Bretz, Director of Corporate Communications at Middleby Corporation, says, "Middleby is committed to supporting the communities where our employees live and work, and we are honored to help expand the efforts of Community Kitchen. We are in the industry of feeding people, and addressing food insecurity is a top priority in our companywide charitable efforts. We are grateful for this opportunity to donate a Southbend range to Greenwood Interfaith Ministries Community Kitchen, which will provide warm meals in the Greenwood community."

“Former Viking employee, Dale Persons, has been a driving force of social responsibility for Greenwood and is a valuable community leader. Viking is constantly thinking of ways to give back to this city that has given us so much. We are a proud part of this community and a global company like Middleby. Middleby strongly believes in this town and its commitment to the community and has worked alongside us for years to give back," says Viking president Kevin Brown.
