If I make it i can help with trash and or kitchen. Did sanitation for OWS and am a restaurant worker by trade. If all goes well ill be headed west from new england on Oct 1st [hopefully with a vehicle]
Bit early but it looks like I might be making my way there this time! I'm excited. Going to meet up with a traveler who is at my house now -who is taking off next week for north then he's hitching his way out to the slabs in time for party so I will meet up with him.
But if I do, and I should get there, I'm good for kitchen/cooking - have worked restaurant/cooking/catering for a number of years so no problem
Might be a good idea to break the kitchen into 2 parts, possibly 3, given the number of people who will be there.
1) main kitchen, dedicated to cooking main meals only. No dish washing, & only utilized for the divisions of food into veg, GF & omni, & possibly pork/shellfish free if anyone is more comfortable that way.
Cooking itself is activity intensive & requires room.
2) Dish washing station. separate area near kitchen, not underfoot, lots of boric acid & citrus based insect control. Pots, pans & main dishware. the kitchen will have its own sinks for utensils.
each will need a garbage can or a few 30 gallon contractor waste bags.
there will be a choice of (preferably UNCOATED) paper plates & bamboo chopsticks, if recyclable ones are not around, or getting a shitload of thrift store utensils.. so long as the utensils are straight, *used* stainless steel, they are not hard impact. avoid thrift store utensils with plastic/phenolic handles, unless intending to permanently keep & not burn.
wood or wood handles are fine.
tomorrow i am going to try & light the fire under the soup i hope i can cook there..
