George and the Amazing One-piece Flow Meal Truck

This YouTube video titled Meals Per Hour tells the story of volunteers applying kaizen to improve the delivery of meals to Superstorm Sandy victims. Toyota volunteers teach food bank staff how to improve through focused, principle-driven, fast and small changes using commonsense ideas. It is one of the best examples I have seen of the power of kaizen being put to its true purpose of furthering the greater good of humanity.

Kaizen should be mandatory for all such efforts to make the most out of our resources to help those in need.
