Solidarity and Kitchen Requests
Please read the terms below before filling out a request.
The People's Potato accepts solidarity requests to prepare food, snacks or beverages for events that fall within our mandate of social and environmental justice. We also lend out our kitchen space to groups who would like to cook for their own event, giving priority to those events where attendance is free of charge. Grassroots events which deal directly with social and environmental justice and community based initiatives are projects that we welcome and support. We also prioritize working in solidarity with those groups that do not have access to the funds to pay for food. We do not work with groups affiliated with a political party or who receive corporate funding.
*Please note that we are not a catering company. As such, we don't provide chafing dishes or other hot holding equipment, and can't stay for your event to serve the food.*
While we remain a secular organization, we will now welcome requests from religious and spiritual groups who are doing social justice work that aligns with our values and mandate.
If your event does not fall within our mandate, we suggest looking into any of these caterers (a big thank-you to Midnight Kitchen for compiling this list). Questions and completed forms can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please allow at least TWO WEEKS (14 days) notice for your request to be reviewed, and make the subject of the email "Solidarity Request" or "Kitchen Request". Requests are processed in the order in which they are received, therefore it is possible that short notice requests will not be considered.
