Challenge

In Kumamoto Earthquake, still 20,559 people are in emergency shelters. This project addresses three problems: (1) Food poisoning under hot weather is especially becoming a serious issue; (2) Financial difficulties in an emergency situation is forcing people not eating adequately; and (3) Many disaster-stricken townships are requesting to transfer the know-how of kitchen car operations.

Solution

The Kamaishi Kitchen Car Project (KKCP) solves Problem (1) by processing food in kitchen cars which are certified by the health authority. For solving Problem (2), KKCP is sending two kitchen cars to serve warm and inexpensive food to 10,000 people in diverse shelters, thus making inexpensive food available to financially restricted people. And for Problem (3), KKCP will transfer know-how to local people and also build the the Kitchen-car Disaster Support Network in Japan.

Long-Term Impact

Long-term impact of this project will be enormous, since the Kumamoto efforts are only a part of building the Kitchen-car Disaster Support Network. The KKCP has been requested by many townships and villages for sharing its know-how. Then, the Kumamoto Earthquake came to provide an opportunity for KKCP to further transfer know-how to local people and expand the network. One company, two associations, six public organizations,and five NPOs in Japan have been involved in the network activities.
