Volunteer with the People's Kitchen


What if we had a completely radical food system? We are taking back our food system at every level and fighting for every family to have access to nutritious, local, chef-cooked meals.

The People's Kitchen is a food security and employment survival project in collaboration with the restaurant South Philly Barbacoa. Each day, Monday through Friday, different chefs from local restaurants, who otherwise would be unemployed, cook in South Philly Barbacoa’s kitchen 250 wholesome, culturally diverse meals, such as jerk chicken and chicken tikka masala. These meals are then either delivered to or picked up at the restaurant by families and neighbors in need, Monday through Friday around 4:00 pm.

It takes a village to lift up our communities in a time of crisis.
