How you can buy,cook, donate a Thanksgiving meal for Occupy Wall St.
Edited on Wed Nov-23-11 04:55 PM by FogerRox
The Occupied Kitchen is faced with a dilemma, how to cook 2500+ meals on Thanksgiving. @OWS_Kitchen was relying on good natured folks to let volunteers come into their kitchens and cook food for OWS. Obviously doing this on Thanksgiving is a problem. Furthermore most restaurants are closed on Thanksgiving.

Thats a problem, and this is the solution:

"This is all about supporting the 99%, said Megan Hayes, an organizer with the #OWS Kitchen working group, and a former high end chef. So many people have given up so much to come and be a part of the movement because there is really that much dire need for community. We decided to take this holiday opportunity to provide just that community."
More than three thousand individually wrapped plates will be distributed on Thursday in accordance with New York State Health Code. People in the community have opened their homes to cook meals. Roger Fox in New Jersey will be making 250 meals, Mia Valh and Alia Gee are also making large numbers of meals. A lot of community organizations are involved and Liberty Cafe in East NY donates space for the #OWS Kitchen working group.

Thats my real name Roger Fox. I'll be a little shy of 250 meals but theres still time left !



Our requests:
1) If you live close to NYC and can open your kitchen to OWS volunteers, you're reading the right diary. Lets talk.

2) IF you live close to me (Montclair NJ) and can cook individually packed Vegan meals (Brown rice, legumes and veggies?). Those little 1 pint white cardboard containers that Chinese restaurants use are fine, and drop them off at my house by noon, we have a vehicle and are collecting about 55 meals and driving into Zuccotti. We leave about Noon and hope to deliver by 2pm.

3) If you live near Mahwah NJ, we have another volunteer who is cooking up about 30 meals and driving in to deliver to Zuccotti Park. If you can cook up something individually packed, I can hook you up with my volunteer in Mahwah.

4) Texas Rotisserie on 94 Fulton St is open on Thanksgiving. The Owners of Texas BBQ are Egyptian and are supporters of the Occupy Movement.


Locally owned family business, Texas BBQ will be providing 2,000 of the meals. They are being purchased with donated funds and will be served along with the home-cooked meals from supporters and food from the Peoples Kitchen at Occupy Wall Street.

Texas Rotisserie delivers and is coordinating with the Occupied Kitchen... and here is their info:

94 Fulton Street, New York, NY 10038

Med - Owner, (212) 566-6692, Fax: (212) 577-2370

Here is a link to their delivery menu:

http://www.TexasRotisserie.com/ShowMenu.tpl?cart=132207520415236267&vSHOWMENU=1001

If you're going to order from Texas Rotisserie tell them to deliver to Zuccotti Park OWS Kitchen anytime between 2pm and 4pm is fine.

SO there you have it, if you're in the area, or not, there is something you can do so that we can feed all these Occupiers with some good hot food. If you want to get involved hit me up on twitter @rdanafox or message me.

7. I feel obliged in a way.
Before the eviction I got my friends to cook hot food and I delivered it on Fridays. But what better thing do do on Thanksgiving, than to give thanks with the Occupiers @OWS.
