SOCIAL KITCHEN "THE OTHER HUMAN"


COMMUNITY KITCHEN "A DIFFERENT PERSON"

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.

  5. Dear Anthropos,

    First I will introduce myself. I am Lotte de Haan, I come from Holland and I am studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Currently I am doing a minor programme which is called City Circles. This program is about researching a circle of 1 km width in a city. This year the circle is located in Athens. We have just ben three weeks in this circle which is located in the area of Metaxourghio. The idea is to process all te information we found within this area, develop a concept, and to come back to realize and exhibit this project.
    Now we all got a topic to do research about. The topic I got is food. This is of course the reason why I am contacting you.

    I will explain a bit about my research
    What I found out during this three weeks in athens is of course that there are a lot of people who do not have access to food. I couldn't justify it for myself to not take these people in account during my research to food.
    After I went to the tuesday market in Kerameikou street I saw there was a lot of food leftover in the streets. Some people came to pick it up but a lot still stayed on the street. This striked me in an environment as Metaxourghio.
    I started wondering how I could do something with this food in a valuable way for this neighbourhood. I understand I can not set up a new charity by myself.
    What I did is going to all the places within the city circle where there is free food to find. To see what was happening and to see what could be an added value. I found out there are actually a lot of places where there is food provided for the ones who can not afford it. I haven't had the chance to visit you because I found out too late you were also active in this surroundings.

    I noticed that all these charities have some things in common. There are always a few people giving food and many many people taking food. Also the people who give food and the people who take this food are never interchanged. Except in your case, understanding from what I have red on your website.

    Nevertheless a question raised on my side; what would happen if this would be a possibility? What if these people had accesebility to a place where they can process their own food?


    Now because you have the experience I would like to ask you the question, do you see any future in this scenario? And why?
    Do you know people who would use this opportunity to process their own food? What social effect would this have on the groups when they can interchange and share?
    I would sincerely like to hear your opinion about this idea. I highly admire the work you have done and what you are doing at the moment. I realize you are busy but I am willing to think with you if you'd like that. If you have any other tips for me to look at, like initiatives or projects which are similar, please let me know. (ldehaan96@hotmail.com)

    Thank you in advance and I am looking forward to your answer.
    And keep up the amazing work!


    Best regards,
