Baytown drive-thru kitchen

From what I've seen, disaster relief agencies, like the American Red Cross, are masters at the efficient use space and layout at their field kitchen sites in Louisiana and Texas. From the kitchen to storage areas to Emergency Support Vehicle parking and service areas, the ARC can transform a large area, like any high school parking lot, into a mass food production facility.

Carol Hedstrom, of the Great Idaho Chapter, hands out lunch to residences in one of the three drive-thru lanes at the Baytown Kitchen site. This is the first time the American Red Cross has used this drive-thru concept for mass feeding.
