The huge kitchen – approximately the size of a basketball court – is equipped with industrial scale food processing tools including 300 litre electric saucepans which cook 750 meals at a time. 

The multi-million dollar facility powered by volunteers aims to cook 1.25 million meals for vulnerable Queenslanders in its first year of operation and scale up to five million meals a year.
