215 People’s Kitchen
The People’s Kitchen is a food security and employment survival project in collaboration with the restaurant South Philly Barbacoa. Each day, Monday through Friday, different chefs from local restaurants, who otherwise would be unemployed, cook in South Philly Barbacoa’s kitchen 250 wholesome, culturally diverse meals, such as jerk chicken and chicken tikka masala. These meals are then either delivered to or picked up at the restaurant by families and neighbors in need. To help with distributing the meals, 215PA has partnered with Church of the Redeemer Baptist Church in Point Breeze, Puentas de Salud, UNITE HERE Philadelphia, and the Pennsylvania Domestic Workers Alliance.
