The Food Control Department is going to establish in Central London a large public kitchen to assist in the national economy of food. It is hoped by this means to enable thousands of people to keep within the rations, and to save on the consumption of bread.
Depots will be also established over a wide district to receive the cooked food, and sell it. The scheme is not meant entirely for the poor, but for the middle-class housewife as well, and it is hoped to supply dinners to all classes.
The London County Council sends out travelling kitchens to instruct housewives how to make the best of the rations; and it has been suggested that if the food shortage became acute, a similar scheme could be organised in the rural districts.
