    OWS Kitchen Staff Revolt

    Occupy Wall Street Kitchen Revolts Against Homeless Moochers: Gothamist

    The complimentary cuisine at Occupy Wall Street has been widely lauded for its surprising sophistication and gourmet variety—not counting a mixed review from curmudgeonly critic Steve Cuozzo, of course. Volunteers toil for as many as 18 hours a day to prepare three square meals for the hungry dissidents. And they're doing such a good job that word has spread among some of the city's homeless population that there's a soup kitchen in Zuccotti Park. In response, the kitchen workers are rising up and going on three day strike to send a message to the freeloaders—the ones who just a little too 99%...

    LOL! Beautiful irony.

    I always thought the OWS people were revolting anyway.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    They WERE revolting against the top 1%. Now I guess they're revolting against the bottom 1%. :P

    Nah, if they stopped feeding the anti-semitics and criminals, they wouldn't have enough left for a good game of bridge.

    You post the dumbest threads ever

    I guess not all Occupy movements are the same. In Philadelphia they also attracted a lot of homeless people, but there are no complaints.

    From the start, participants were loath to displace any homeless people who consider City Hall home.

    "So we provide them the same services we give everyone else - tents, tarps, clothing, and three meals a day," says Joe Kalil, 51, an unemployed stone cutter. "We are committed to a better, different world so we have no choice but to share what we have."

    Volunteers prepare and distribute about 1,500 meals a day, using the kitchen at the nearby American Friends Service Committee.

    "At first it was loosey-goosey," says Patricia McBee, executive director of the Friends Center. "But they've really pulled themselves together. There are knowledgeable cooks on every shift. It goes from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. when we close. They're in there, preparing, chopping, preparing the donations - it's pretty impressive."

    The center had allowed the protesters access to the building's shower, but it broke from overuse this week.

    Most of those using the facility were homeless.

    The encampment's provision of shelter and food has drawn many to stay in the plaza, even though they have no connection to the protest.

    Several activists say this only demonstrates the need for more social services for this population.

    "We wish Occupy wasn't the only one providing 24/7 food," Goldstein says..
