“The Peoples’ Kitchen at UTC” launched by Progressive Student Alliance

Peoples’ Kitchen at UTC

Announcement from the Progressive Student Alliance at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga:

“Free Food for the People! Tuesdays, 12pm-1pm in Christ Episcopal Church parking lot at the corner of Douglas and Oak Street.

The Progressive Student Alliance (PSA) believes in affordable, healthy, fair and sustainable food. Yet our food system, primarily controlled by corporations, consistently falls short of these expectations. The production and distribution of food for profit has led to the widespread use of inhumane and unsustainable factory farms. Laborers at both ends work for low wages in often unsafe environments in order to maximize profits for the executives and shareholders who own the company.

Because of this, we believe it is important for people to reclaim food sovereignty and security at the grassroots level, and produce food for the good of people and the community. The PSA seeks to meet the immediate needs of students and workers in our campus community, while joining the conversation on food sustainability and economic justice by offering a free lunch at least once a week using organic, locally produced ingredients. (And we make some pretty mean soup!) The food is free, and we will be collecting donations to keep the program running and expand if possible!

If you want to learn more about the Progressive Students Alliance, what we do, and how to get involved, just give us a shout or meet us at one of our meetings!”

Meetings every Monday, 8:00 pm in the UC Fortwood Room!
