As farmers, a huge part of our mission is food preparation, food preservation, nutritional education, and of course FEEDING PEOPLE. Our goal is to create a mobile kitchen unit that is certified to prepare and serve food as well as preserve farm fresh local food. This will enable us and our outlaying community to better preserve the harvest, create income with value added products and build nutritious foundations for the future by serving local food prepared on site.
The great part about our project is that we have already completed a large portion of the work! Starting with a bare bones school bus, we insulated the floor and walls, then installed laminate flooring and the main electrical system using recycled and second-hand materials. Once the bus had been outfitted with a cozy new interior, we partially installed a stainless steel counter-top and three basin sink, and even have a stove temporarily hooked up.
This Kick Starter Mission is to help us complete the project by bringing in the necessary funding to hook up the plumbing systems, cooking and canning systems, a few final touches and the licensing and certification. Our monetary goal is based upon the basic completion and licensing, but we can achieve a higher quality of kitchen bus and a more complete level of self-reliance with further funding. Solar panels, pantry trailer, back up generators, back up batteries, and serving tents (enabling us to serve in undeveloped areas!) are just a few of the ideas we have for funds over our Kickstarter goal.
