People to Feed

When it comes to disaster response and recovery, timing, experience, and dependability count to help you continue to feed the people you serve. Kitchens To Go has worked with organizations such as the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army following a variety of disasters to help keep people fed. In the wake of a disaster, commercial foodservice operations do not have the luxury of waiting four to eight months that is usually required to gain permit approvals, design, and build a new kitchen on site. Often is the case, first responders are facing a battle against the clock to feed people who may be trapped, stranded, or in need of ongoing hospitality.

Kitchens and Equipment

Often, a mobile kitchen is the ideal solution that can be deployed quickly. In addition, Kitchens To Go can provide wash and prep areas, walk-in coolers, storage, and even in-house laundry facilities. The type and size of kitchen and other equipment will be determined based on a client’s needs and the number of people that must be fed.
