2000 people who can and can afford to give 100 euros only once will buy our own home. Only here

Sunday, June 9, 2019

As of tomorrow, Monday, June 10, The Other Person will not have a car for transportation of food items, etc.  On the Sunday of the run-off elections, while the vegetables were being transported from 1500 metres away to the cooking site, there was an accident.  Since we didn’t have insurance, we had to surrender the license plates and pay two fines of 500 euros each and an additional 500 euros for not having the car insured.  We also have to repair the car, which had been given to us.

Of course, we have made a special agreement stating that the car belongs only to me personally so that the man who gave it to us is covered.  So what is needed at this time is 1.500 euros for the fines, plus 600 euros to repair the car, a total of 2.100 euros.  

Unfortunately, we did not manage to collect this amount from the solidarity concert, so in August, that is, in two (2) months, in addition to the car expenses, we will again need to pay the rent on our space.

No, the news is not tragic--things are just difficult.  But we like difficult situations, and that’s why we’re “the other people”...

[Note:  O Allos Anthropos is in need of 3.300 euros to pay the first six months’ rent in advance for the significant rent discount which will allow them to remain in their rented space.  This rent is due on May 1, with a deadline of May 20.  If they cannot come up with the rent, they will have to move out and discontinue the efforts described below.]

I see, I understand that it is difficult, very difficult for us to collect the money for the new space.  I simply want to let you know that EVEN IF we’ve come full circle as THE OTHER PERSON, and EVEN IF we end our efforts, there are people who will continue them even if it’s only once per week.  It’s possible that we’ll end our daily cooking with communication, respect, solidarity, but it will exist.

The thing that’s going to upset me and, I think, many (not all) of us is the house.  I’m / We’re going to miss the daily greeting from the 100-150 people who’ve been coming to the house and having coffee with us, who took their showers in our bathroom, who ironed their clothes and our clothes as well.

I’m especially going to miss the children and teens who came for supplemental tutoring lessons.  I’ll miss their shouts, laughter, tears, and struggles.

I’ll miss the theatre company with their rehearsals, their voices, my complaining about how long the rehearsal was lasting...

I’ll miss the gathering of the 450 families that came with dignity every month to get food to last the entire month.

I’ll miss the September gatherings where we distributed the school lists [items] to those who didn’t have them.

I’ll miss the cutting of the New Year’s vasilopita bread.  I’ll miss the large Easter candles which gave the children and us such happiness.

I’ll miss many of you—not having daily contact.

BUT we’ve said “every obstacle happens for a reason”...nothing has ended yet...hope and struggle are what keep us alive.


Whoever can help, we need you here.  The money is here, and you need to know that if we don’t manage to collect the 3.300 euros, by 20 May, whatever money has been collected will be returned.

The impetus for the "Different Person" community kitchen was when we saw people of all ages, nationalities, ethnicities, and social classes looking through the left-overs at Athens farmers' markets in an effort to gather food that they could not afford to buy. The first response was to cook food at home and try to distribute for free at the farmers' markets. We then asked vendors to each donate one product from their stands so that we could continue the next day. After that, we decided to instead to both cook and eat together in an effort combat the shame of receiving a free cooked meal. Another purpose of our community kitchen is to distribute any left over funds (typically 30-40 EUR/month) to unemployed people who help us on a daily basis and when possible for our volunteers too!

The idea of Social Kitchen "The Other Human" began when we noticed in the public food markets of Athens, people of various ages, nationalities, and social levels rummaging through rubbish to find food they otherwise couldn't afford to buy. The first obvious response was to cook our own food from home and distribute it in the public market places. We asked each food stall merchant to volunteer one item from their food bench so we could continue the next day. We then decided to cook on site for people and to eat the cooked food together. This way we could all come together and break through any shame or embarrassment which might be an issue for anyone.

The idea of Society Kitchen "The Other Human"
is an action of solidarity and a manifestation of love towards our fellowmen,
with the hope to awaken consciousness
and for there to be other similar actions from others and from groups
These actions are not philanthropic or charity. 

We cook "live", we eat together and we live together.
A lunch with our fellowman on the street. 
Join us to make each day more beautiful.

The idea of the Community Kitchen “The Other Person” began when, at the Athens neighborhood farmers’ markets, we saw people of all ages, ethnicities, and social classes searching through the garbage for food which they could no longer afford to buy.

Our first understandable response was to cook food that we usually cook at home and share it at the markets. We asked the market stall vendors to give us one food item from their stall so that we could continue sharing the next day.

We decided to start cooking “live,” with everyone eating together, so that we could all become closer as a community and eliminate the shame which a person receiving free cooked food may feel.

An additional goal of the community kitchen’s efforts is to manage to give unemployed individuals who work with the kitchen on a daily basis whatever money is left over in the account (30-40 euros per month) and, from the different events to be held in support of the kitchen, to give a little something to the volunteers!

The idea behind the Community Kitchen “The Other Person” is to create solidarity with and to demonstrate love toward our fellow man, with the hope of raising awareness so that there are similar efforts undertaken by other individuals and groups.

We are not practicing “philanthropy” or “charity” as these terms are used today.

We cook “live.”  We all eat together, and we all live together!

A meal with our fellow man in the street.

Join us in making daily life more beautiful!
