North Country Food Alliance is building a mobile kitchen to cook free & healthy community meals in diverse locations across the Twin Cities. We plan to provide free meals in public spaces, at community events, at picket lines, and anywhere else we feel we can make a positive impact. The community meals program is projected to launch by summer of 2014.
We are assembling two mobile community kitchens: our first prototype will be a smaller kitchen, which can be transported on our 8-ft bicycle cart and assembled anywhere; the second will be a larger industrial kitchen assembled on a truck or bus to serve large crowds.
