Mobile Forage & Field Yield Kitchen (MFFYK)


Mobile Forage & Field Yield Kitchen (MFFYK)


The MFFYK is a multipurpose, modular unit for food preparation and culinary education in parks, informal green spaces, and neighborhood gardens.
File under

MFFYK brings together residents in a democratic space based on cooking and community. The mobile stall allows for increased civic engagement and provides a low-fi way to teach healthy eating habits, renewing citydwellers’ connection to the natural world and homegrown, healthy food.

We have lost their connection to the growing and harvesting of food. Basic plants are unrecognizable to children in their pre-processed form and obesity is on the rise. This project helps to reintroduce the natural world to residents of large cities. While gardening initiatives in underused urban spaces have proliferated in recent years their produce often goes to a limited audience—by preparing food on site and cooking in situ we can build community connections.

This trailer can be brought into even the smallest urban green spaces to make food. Following an illustrated instructional booklet a facilitator fixes a meal from local greens and teaches others how to plant, harvest, and prepare local food.
