Convert a bus into a sustainable community kitchen

Location: United States, California, San Francisco County, San Francisco

I am a seasoned traveller and a trained cook. My project is to turn a short school bus into an off-grid travelling community kitchen, to go from California to South America, stopping and helping at farms along the way and collecting any excess food they may have to make meals for anyone else I meet along the way, because everyone deserves a decent meal. I am about halfway finished with the conversion. The first phase of acquiring the bus and converting it to run of off veggie oil is pretty much complete (I just drove a test run about 600km for $0.54). The second phase, which we are working on now, involves the creation of the kitchen. This will include installation of a solar set-up, a water system, and the design and execution of a stove that runs on veggie oil.
