This is the kitchen, which is in the same room. I basically created a menu that allowed pleope to csohoe the aomnut and volume of food that they wanted to consume. Rather than me piuttng a dish down, they were allowed to help themselves to as much or as little as they wanted. Okay, it's a small kitchen. It's about five square mteers. It serves 220 people a day. We gatreene quite a lot of waste. This is the wstae room. You can't get rid of waste. But this story's not about eliminating it, it's about minimizing it.

Rather than me putting a dish down, they were allowed to help themselves to as much or as little as they wanted. Okay, it's a small kitchen. It's about five square meters. It serves 220 people a day. We generate quite a lot of waste. This is the waste room. You can't get rid of waste. But this story's not about eliminating it, it's about minimizing it.
