The National Kitchen is in no sense a charity

Ascot struggled to make the National Kitchen scheme work.

The National Kitchen depot in South Ascot is only developing slowly. The food is excellent, and may be ordered by anyone. As the Committee are responsible for payment of all food ordered, it is essential that those ordering food shall be held liable for payment if the food remains unsold. The Kitchen is in no sense a charity; its prices are based upon the expectation that the profit shall cover the expenses.
