this tue + medic training

1. cooking/serving this tue.
2. street medic training june 9-10
3. text scheduling

+   i’ll be outta town early next week, so i’m doing scheduling early. if you want to cook or serve this coming tuesday, june 5, holla back. its the usual: cooking at my house 10am-3pm, serving shift 2:30-5:30pm (actual serving at duncan plaza @ 3-4pm, cleanup after).

+   also… community kitchen is providing food service for the street medic training june 9-10. we’ll be making breakfast & lunch on sat & sunday, and providing donated snacks and coffee (thanks, st. coffee!). if you wanna help out with prep, cooking, or transportation, please let me know asap.
+   in striving for a horizontal organizing structure, i’ve asked others to help out with scheduling cooks & servers for our tuesday meals. most folks who participate with community kitchen prefer being contacted via text message, and to make this easier to conduct via cell phone, i’ve created a text messaging-based listserv that any member can use to perform scheduling. some of you may have received text messages from 23559 (spells “celly”) inviting you to join the list. please do. it makes the scheduler’s life much easier.
if you haven’t joined, send a text message to 23559 with the message “@ckitchen”
you are loved,

    current nola food-shares:

    * TUE :: community kitchen:
    hot food serving 3-4pm @ duncan plaza between city hall & the main branch public library.

    * WED :: hot food share, serving 2pm @ the mission in central city.

    * there should be more...
    you could start one!


    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."
