Feeding Minds as Well as Bodies: The Design of Communal 'British Restaurants' in World War 2.
In World War 2 in Britain ‘communal feeding centres’ or ‘community kitchens’ were created by to assist people who had been bombed out of their homes or needed to take their lunch time meal outside their home and did not have access to a workplace canteen. This talk considers how the British Restaurant became a brand associated with the idea of a good meal through the Ministry’s directives on design and its ‘brightening’ policy.
