Ukrainian Railways (Ukrzaliznycia) has created the world’s first kitchen train. The Food Train project was implemented together with the foundation of American billionaire Howard Buffett. The invention is capable of producing more than 10,000 servings of food every day, even in the absence of light.
“The food train has already passed a test check, and in the near future the joint team of Ukrzaliznycia and the foundation will be on permanent duty in the most difficult front-line areas of Ukraine, where heat and food are critically important for life,” said Yevhen Liashchenko, chairman of the board of Ukrzaliznytsia.
The Food Train can work autonomously for 5–7 days non-stop. The train’s equipment allows you to prepare complete meals: soups, oatmeals, salads, meat, etc. Special thermal boxes inside the train make transporting ready-made food from the kitchen to the end consumer easy.
The train consists of six cars under the locomotive: a generator car, a refrigerator car, a car with a cold kitchen, a car with a hot kitchen, a car for the train staff, and a baggage car.
The Howard Buffett Foundation fully finances the construction and operation of the train, Ukrzaliznytsia noted.
