Useful combination
Status: in use

Public kitchen. May be run as a local amenity by a campsite, part of a refugee camp or social facility. (Not for kitchen-shop!)


If possible use an area area for a kitchen building and add a node node building=entrance to the entrance on the outline. (This is helpful for blind navigation users). Add this area building=yes/hut/... and amenity=kitchen.
If the kitchen is not a separate building, place a node node centrally at the location of the kitchen amenities and tag it amenity=kitchen.
