We have reached our fundraising goal to purchase a new oven in just 11 days! And the new oven is now standing shinny and bright in the BZC kitchen!
The new oven will allow us to bake multiple trays of food at once, making meal preparation for large numbers of guests more manageable, as is the case with the upcoming sesshin. The new oven, which replaced a old one that had been given to BZC as a donation years ago and was no longer operational, will allow us to continue to provide meals during meditation retreats, Saturday community lunches (when available) and to support kitchen practice for years to come.
Our heartfelt appreciation to all who contributed to the fundraising campaign. Your support made this possible – thank you!
