next cook/serve: march 6

mardi gras kinda knocked some of us out. i’m still suffering from the post-mardi gras sickness, but luckily community kitchen got back to a start this week without a hitch (except for that car accident i had on the way to drop off kitchen supplies…)

thanks to other participants who offered up kitchen space, we’ve successfully done our first kitchen rotation. we cooked & served on tuesday, serving up around 100 meals outside the new orleans mission in central city. i’m still thinking about moving the serving to duncan plaza by city hall or somewhere with slightly less concrete & carbon monoxide, but the mission is often where we can immediately reach the largest number of folks from the homeless community in one place. if we can get the word out, a move to a park space should be effective.

we will be cooking again this coming tuesday, march 6th back in our original kitchen. holler if you’re not involved yet and want to know more, or if you’ve sent me your number and i haven’t called you back. because the interest has been so great, i’m attempting to coordinate a 2nd day of cooking each week. i can also use help coordinating, so if you’re into that kinda thing, let me know.

heart,
nico

    you could start one!

    WHY?

    because there's too much food being thrown away, & because the right to be free from hunger is a fundamental human right.

    "Solidarity is not a matter of altruism. Solidarity comes from the inability to tolerate the affront to our own integrity of passive or active collaboration in the oppression of others, and from the deep recognition of our most expansive self-interest. From the recognition that, like it or not, our liberation is bound up with that of every other being on the planet, and that politically, spiritually, in our heart of hearts we know anything else is unaffordable."
