Westminster Main Kitchen Protocols

Any Main Kitchen use should be coordinated through the FUN Team/Laura Lee Moffet, and Nosh & Gather. Please include the following in an email inquiry:

  • Event name, date, size, brief description, etc.
  • How many people will be in the kitchen & for how long?
  • Will you need to use Westminster equipment, table ware or compostables
  • Will you need to use the dishwasher?

 

After you have received approval to use the Main Kitchen, please follow the steps below:

1. Add event in Mazevo: 

  • You may need to adjust the Nosh and Gather reservation.

2. If planning to use Westminster items, request a tour or walk-through beforehand.

  • Many items in the kitchen are not available to be used. None of Nosh and Gather equipment or food is available under any circumstances.*

3. Arrange all food and ingredients related to the event.

  • Any food found on-site is unavailable for use, unless marked/noted as such or otherwise communicated.*

4. Follow food safety protocols, e.g. hand-washing, glove-wearing, etc.*

5. Wash all used dishes.*

  • Dishwasher video available here: Westminster Dishwasher How-To-video.
    • If a large event needs to hire a dishwasher, contact Laura Lee or Eeva. Note: this will be charged to the event, department, or ministry area.
  • The three compartment sinks in both the main kitchen and warming kitchen are set up to be used to wash, rinse, and sanitize.
    • There are sanitizer tablets and red buckets at each sink.
    • The red buckets are to be used with sanitizer and the green with detergent.
    • Detergent and sanitizer buckets should be filled at the beginning of each event (Surfaces may look clean but that doesn’t mean that they are!).
    • The sanitizer should be changed every four hours.

6. Complete a full post-event clean-up and leave the kitchen in same or cleaner condition.*

7. If there is leftover food, please clearly mark it, send out communication if it is available, and make sure it is removed within one week if not consumed.*
