People's Kitchen

What if we had a completely radical food system?

We are taking back our food system 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 El Compadre in South Philadelphia. The Project initiates base building, political education, and organizing strategies in Philadelphia to connect people, through the synergy of food, worker, and cultural platforms, into a movement that grows relationships, stimulates community dialogue, and builds political power, all while serving more than 200 free, chef-cooked meals per day.

To help with distributing the meals, 215PA has partnered with Church of the Redeemer Baptist Church in Point Breeze, Puentes de Salud, UNITE HERE Philadelphia, SEAMAAC and the Pennsylvania Domestic Workers Alliance.
