This iReport is part of an assignment:
Hurricane season 2012
Grassroots group to feed Hurricane Isaac victims
This is Everybody's Kitchen
A free kitchen on wheels.
Birthed in '92, evolving on down the road: gathering, cooking and distributing food and resources, networking, connecting and encouraging community (it's community that makes this happen! Yes, that means you too!)...seeing for ourselves what's going on out on the streets, swept under the "rugs" of society, broken apart, below the scenes, the turned-away-from and the muted, and those who have fallen through the cracks...
For example: inner city streets, houseless populations, disaster relief, political action and demo support...
To express self empowerment, sustainability, community, unity, health, being family, being human (before it becomes a crime!)...from the heart
No hierarchy here, no boards, no directors.Consensus decision making process with those who are involved(no arm chair quarterbacks)
Setting example with hope it will grow
Sharing food. Everyone has the human right to eat. Whether you have a dime in your pocket or not.
This function has a 0% administration cost, imagine that!
This is a no strings attached
function other than helping
With the help of Unmetneed.org www.unmetneed.weebly.com Everybody's Kitchen will be headed to the Gulf Coast to feed people No Strings Attatched.
In 2005 this group was part of a bigger collaberation affectionately named "The New Waveland Cafe"
