The General Kitchen was completed in 2012, and is a major success story for Floresta. The community kitchen/cafeteria was inspired by the vision of local women in a small community located in the Purus National Rainforest deep the heart of the Amazon rainforest. The kitchen attracts people from nearby villages and provides meals for little or no cost. All food is supplied by local gardens and through community efforts. The project has brought the local women together and has helped make their community more sustainable. The general kitchen is now a major meeting place where villagers and visitors gather together, enjoying healthy food and a strong sense of community.
