In May of 2018, we rolled out our Kitchen Cart, equipped with pots, pans and hot plates and served over a hundred hot meals. The Kitchen Cart allows us to engage the community with our garden and with the meaningful practice of cooking.
In the garden we pull carrots, still dusty from the earth and kale off of jurassic looking trees. To many, what grows in our garden is produce – not food. Cooking it, allows others to fully connect the dots between our garden and their dining hall meals. When we taste, we are reflecting and recalling memories and stories we have held around food. This kitchen catalyzes communal gathering, storytelling and food literacy.
