Rotarians were treated to a compelling presentation by Outside the Bowl, an Oceanside-based charity that helps eliminate physical and spiritual starvation by building super kitchens in developing communities
These kitchens are built and equipped in the United States and then shipped to locations outside the United States and constructed on site. They are run by local staff and after one year have been proven to be sustained by the local non-profits that receive the food at lower price than they would be able to provide it for. This saves other organizations time, effort, and money and allows them to focus on meeting the needs of those in crisis. So far Outside the Bowl has built seven Super Kitchens, most recently in Haiti. The speaker was Becky Rosaler, who said she last addressed a Rotary Club meeting 16 years ago, when she was a Rotary exchange student bound for Australia.
