A Rapid City homeless shelter is once again serving hot meals after getting a $350,000 kitchen renovation.
The Cornerstone Rescue Mission's upgrade went over budget and took longer than expected, but its chef says he's thrilled with the results.
Jamie Hagan served about 130 people at the first midday meal last week. Ham and bean soup and fried chicken were on the menu.
The project's cost was paid for through grants and donations. The work began in August, after which Cornerstone's residents were fed either at an alternative site or given sack lunches.
Between 300 and 400 meals are served at Cornerstone each day. The new kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a new stove and a double-convection oven.
