Everybody’s Kitchen

Everybody’s Kitchen started at the Ocala regional gathering in 1992, and they appeared at annual gatherings in the 1990s. Their presence was especially large at the 1995 New Mexico annual. In recent years they have been devoting all of their energies to feeding homeless people in the cities they visit. They have no set schedule; they go from city to city based on collective decision and stay as long as they feel welcome.

They have a kitchen bus that houses a full kitchen with stove, oven, and food storage closet that meet all public health standards in local restaurants across the U.S. They also have a flatbed truck that is used to gather food from wholesalers, restaurants, bakeries and the like, and to serve the food in the impoverished parts of the cities. They also have several vans that provide sleeping quarters for their volunteers.

After Hurricane Katrina they served victims in Pointe au Chien and New Orleans, Louisiana.
