Our Kitchen: Remarkable Food Prepared By Hand At The COOK Kitchen

Our Kitchen

OK, so this isn’t an official accolade, but the COOK Kitchen in Sittingbourne, Kent is like no other. It takes 300 people, working day and night, with immense care and pride, to create our meals. We love showing people round, but if you never make it to our corner of Kent, here’s a virtual guided tour.


1. Goods In

We check in all our ingredients with the same diligence as a sergeant major inspecting his troops on the parade ground. No ingredient enters the Kitchen unless we’re 100% happy and, as our suppliers will tell you, we are very, very fussy.



2. Prep

Under the watchful eye of Big Rob, the Prep Team prepares all the ingredients for the chefs. Vegetables are topped and tailed, peeled and sliced. Meat is trimmed and diced. In the Spice Room, herbs and spices are mixed for marinades. Prep is home to

BROC donates food to GBICS’ Kitchen Cupboard program | The Bennington Banner

By Patricia LeBoeuf, Bennington Banner

BENNINGTON — In a collaborative effort to provide assistance to struggling individuals, BROC Community Action was set to donate food, hundreds of bars of soap, money and gift cards to Greater Bennington Interfaith Community Services on Monday.

“They’re doing a great job over there, and we have resources, and so it seemed like a really smart partnership to put BROC Community Action together with GBICS, Kitchen Cupboard in this case, and throw our weight behind their efforts,” said Tom Donahue, CEO of BROC.

Donahue said he believes collaborating with GBICS’ Kitchen Cupboard program is a strong response to make sure people are taken care of in their time of need.

Basically, he said, they’re taking “everything from our food shelf” and bringing it to the Kitchen Cupboard program.

Donahue said he did think about different ways BROC could run its food shelf program during the
