Misha massaged almost all the volunteers and MaryBeth played with the kiddo's all day...happily covered in paint!!!! This is such an adventure and now we have a set up to be used in the future. ..thanks to all the support! !! **Update!!! We made it to Jacksonville ! Then Ormond beach and ..Tampa . Then Imokalee Florida to plug in with Burners without Borders and Grassrootsalliance.org
another grassroots group there... To help and supplement what they are doing...We had to work abit more to pay for all the expenses coming up and just keep plugging away doing our best...For this action this is currently the Sugar snail kitchen and will be ready to respond to future actions quickly since we are working out all the things a community action needs to work out! Any help helps but we will just do what we can and post updates along the way!!!
Please help us by sharing our page and chipping in to help our efforts in Florida.. It's easy to think that they are fine ..but the reality it that there are many communities that still need ongoing support to rebuild and restore hope.. Your help right now makes a huge difference.. We will post updates so you know exactly how your funds help us bring the instant kitchen to those who need it....much love!!!!!!!
**UPDATE!! Thanks to amazing fam and burning luv WE HAVE THE MOBILE INSTANT KITCHEN!!!!!
** Figuring out the in and outs of 'Sugar" and she grrrs...my mechanic tells me that a 460 doesnt really prrr... so she grrrs and driving alot smoother thanks to the Seafoam system and the helpful people at my local Advance Auto...who were so patient with me.. i may be back if the new fuses dont fix the wonkie electrical thing on the right side... muffler redirect about to be installed tommorow and then the intsakitchen box on the back will be one of the final structural things sorted... getting to be the snail kitchen but i am realizing more now that this preparation is setting us up for long term community enriching actions and this concept once figured out can be shared with other actions as well....
Wishlist: food sponsors...donations to reach the last 1,000 of our goal that will keep us mobile.. please share this link with your groups that would like to help with our Florida relief effort.....
Current needs: virtual volunteers!!! You're great on social media and can do letters collaberate with relief groups,help research and plan to take this from non profit association into 501.c3 status as an educational and outreach initiative alleviating food insecurity by promoting and making available healthy food choices for a thriving planet.
And help coordinate with other relief groups!! You have experience with festival organizing or Burning Man coordination or general office admin and consensus community ... Please help!!! I’m sure you could help do things like the fundpage and general admin stuff...please pm me on Facebook!!! One small inverter generator... gas cards... and whatever else to help us bring some cheesy love to the people!!!!!! Especially food sponsors...think hummus healthy bread, gluten-free if possible, spinach dip, veggies... Heady cheesy love!!!!
I was in Brooksville Florida and just started Thai Yoga School.. We were evacuated due to Irma and I felt the seriousness of what these hurricanes due to communities… So we've decided to go back to Asheville and load up our Burning Man theme camp kitchen which we called GRILLED CHEESE US! And the idea of the INSTANT KITCHEN!! was born!!
We have a 10 by 20 commercial set up and everything we need (almost)). We still could use another tabletop grill (propane).
Light shelving that can easily be set up and packed down.. so we are going to load up as much food (compassionate kitchen so healthy meat free) and supplies and go to Florida to serve hurricane victims some food and coordinate with other relief actions... and possibly we can take the same set up and bring it to Texas (HR#Instantkitchen2) to help people if they need it!!
This amazing group of people were a part of Emergency Communities and the Made With Love Cafe after Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy and many other altruistic efforts (I can't remember them all right now to list!!!) And we’re in talks with Burners Without Borders and the Dr.B’s crew to connect and help as we can!!!
So your money will help us get what we need to where we need it and whatever else we need to help people in need!! (may include other needs of the communities if we can bring along).
We will be taking pics and sharing what we do through updates and Facebook.
IF WE HAVE ANYTHING EXTRA IT GOES DIRECT TO UNITEDPEACERELIEF.ORG
TO GO TO HARVEY AND IRMA RELIEF!!!
for those of you that want to help like i do with Irma relief please go to GRASSROOTSALLIANCE.ORG

We need virtual support/admin help pronto!! Looking into this a non-profit association to head towards 501c3 if we get enough support to keep this going!!
And will beg and borrow as much as possible to make your $$ go as far as possible...
