Canada Board'. , , � xmf YORK, Nov. 80.-The com-xnunity' kitchen has parsed the experimental stage hers and has hecome part ol\ the complex life ^of the. city. It is now firmly established in the poorer.Quarters and Is regarded as Btdre or le�9 of a staadlng institution. But the oojn�unlty kitchens of  X�vf9r Bait side..

The kitclven Is situated in a factory district and in the first five motiths no fewer than 21,000 meals were served. Lunches fare sent to the factories on wagonettes, but about sixty per cent, of the business is based on the cash and carry system. The general plan is to patronize local retail merchants for supplies, so that the kitchen need j not interfere with their business. Method of Financina It was tinancefflh the first place by a tun^ of $2,000 and 6f this sum $1,000 was expended on equipment. T^ie' staff consists of two cooks, two cleaners, a dish washer, canteen manager, waitress and superintendent. Contain-era for the food are provided by the customers themselves. Some of them have been provided with three meals a daj>for a period of four months, at an average expenditure of ten cents per person for each meal. , [ An interesting feature of the St. Loitls Neighborhood Kitchen is the emphasis placed on catering; to the children of tlie district. There is what is called the "schcx^ children's^ lunch." At noon a balanced meal of soup, meat, vegetables, potatoes and puddings is given them for ten cents. After school, five and ten-cent lunches are available. Commercial firms have interested themselres in this end of the work to the extent of- donating such supplies as cocoa and malted milk for the children's fare, r Cafeteria Most Profitable There are many variations of the community kitchen but the combination of general catering and a public cafeteria would appear to be the most practical for Canadian cities. Location is of the first importance and the choice of a skilled woman to conduct the kitchen.. It is through local enterprise that the kitchens can he atapted and any cbmiriunlty. 'The women of Ottawa and Torbnt6\.have been making definite plans towards, this end and, remembering' thc^ sue-, cess which � attended the community canning centres, .there- seems no reason why pnhlic food centres shouldj not prove equally saUalactoryVih the ' saving of food, money, time-and fuel.. During fhe coming 'winter the' need for conservation' Will be as great as ever and -relaxation of effort is unthinkable tintil we are assured that Eurppe has plenty of food to go Tound. The�different varieties of community kitchens may beigrouped as.follows: (1) Educational kitchen for; demonstration purposes', either sedsohai Tor permanent; (2) canning, kitchcjn -r strictly seasonal; C3) dehydrating kitchen; (4) Idtchen combining canning and drying with cooking and baking; (5) cooked food centre tor thSl^sale or distribution of food. The National Kitchens of Britain are a somewhat different .proposition from the community kitchens of this continent.' They are financed-by the Government in the first place. On tlie understanding that the loans would; be repaid within ten years.; In most casps, public bUtldlngs were given over to the work.
