When Jae and Debra realized the large numbers of children suffering from hunger in South Africa, they sought out the most effective feeding method. In the process they learned kids rarely see the pre-packaged meals intended for them. Older, wiser, and also hungry adults often steal the dry-packaged food. They eat it themselves. They sell it. The potential meals often end up supporting gambling or drug habits, not growth and life. The Evans’ knew they had to get perishable meals directly to the children to get the food in their stomachs. They wanted to feed the hungry adults, too. So, they developed a feeding and distribution system centered around the Super Kitchen.
A Super Kitchen has an exterior of steel and superhuman powers used to benefit all of humanity, sort of like Superman. It feeds thousands every day. We renovate cargo shipping containers; pack them with a complete kitchen (700-pound electrical kettles, water storage tank, tools & more), add roof support and other building materials, and ship it to the site. Once it arrives, the Super Kitchen can be constructed and operational in weeks.
We build every Super Kitchen with the goal of sustainability.
To do this we:
- partner with established in-country organizations
- employ locals to run the kitchen
- teach the community to care for itself
- supplement our partners with a feeding powerhouse so their ministries can flourish
Our hope it that over time, this stronger, more uplifted community knows what it means to experience God’s love and pass it along.
