A gym for people with disabilities receives a new kitchen to allow them to focus on health and nutrition.
Students from Highlands College are in the process of building a brand new kitchen at Gym Dandy in Uptown Butte.
The gym is often utilized by organizations that support people with disabilities.
The goal of this new kitchen is to teach the folks with disabilities how to be more independent and how to live a healthy and nutritious lifestyle.
"Whether it's teaching them good nutrition so they don't get sick, or if it's not knowing how to cook and they want to try to transition from a group home, their parents home, to move into a more independent style," said Todd Hoar with the Developmental Disabilities Council. "It's teaching them how to cook for themselves."
The money to build the kitchen was generated from Buttetober Fest last fall.
The brew fest brought dozens of breweries to the Mining City and generated enough money to buy the new addition.
