Meals on Wheels
San Francisco, CA, USA

Meals on Wheels San Francisco has served the needs of homebound seniors since 1970. The program was extremely successful and resulting in planning to have a new comprehensive facility built and operational by 2019. Today’s facility includes a much larger industrial kitchen, food production zone, and distribution center which supports the ever-growing population.

See Meals on Wheels San Francisco’s website –

The 35,794 square foot facility located at 2230 Jerrold Avenue, San Francisco, includes a state-of-the-art cook-chill area, high bay freezers, assembly production areas, receiving docks, and rooftop solar panels.

The kitchen is designed to more than double the efficiency and output of meals from 8,000 meals daily to up to 30,000 and to maximize quality and choice for clients.

The production facility is the only one of its kind in San Francisco that will use cook-chill equipment to produce bulk food to be used in meals.

The kitchen is located near the San Francisco Wholesale Produce Market in the Bayview allowing for food recapture opportunities; in time, the facility may also be able to help other organizations fulfill their missions through food.

The facility will house a test kitchen for the creation of new, nutritious, medically tailored recipes based on the availability of seasonal foods.

Exhaust Hoods used for Food Processing Kitchen Ventilation

An important consideration for the kitchen ventilation system was to ensure the energy efficiency of the design. In addition, address the potential for significant condensation build-up over the cook-chill line. To address the design requirements, Halton proposed the KCH Capture Jet hood. This hood has a unique interior geometry to channel condensation to a perimeter gutter system and drain. Originally develop by Halton’s team in China to address the high moisture cooking it has been listed for use in North America. It has all the benefits of Capture Jet with the added benefit of minimizing condensation issues. Halton’s M.A.R.V.E.L. system was the control platform to manage airflow through demand based on cooking status.
