I just received a call from Megan at the Occupied Kitchen, they will have no kitchens to cook food on Thanksgiving. I had planned to go in to cook on Thanksgiving, but that plan just went up in smoke.

Instead, what I have been tasked with is the delivery of 200 hot indivually packaged 90% Vegan meals to Occupy Wall St at 2pm Thanksgiving Day. I live in New Jersey, and Zuccotti Park is about an hours drive, during October I delivered over 400 hot meals on Fridays. I have an existing model that needs to be expanded 3 fold in 3 days.

Priority needs

1) We need 6 volunteer minivan drivers from New Jersey, Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, who can pay tolls and gas.
2) We need 6 volunteer staging areas from New Jersey, Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn, where cooked hot food can be brought together with the drivers.
3) We need all NY metro Kossacks to help get the word out. Please your your email lists, twitter accounts and facebook friends. I am @rdanafox on twitter and will use the  Occupy Montclair facebook page for the Jersey side efforts.
4) We need one person to take on the communications side to organize Brooklyn and Queens.

Take this to your union heads, DFA groups, PDA groups, I can be emailed thru OccupyDailyKos at the cowboy yelling yahoo.

Lets roll....

11:28 AM PT: 5) And we need 20 to 50 people who out of the goodness of their hearts will cook Thnaksgiving Dinner for the Occupiers of Zuccotti Park.

12:45 PM PT: Ok- This isnt sexy, but its GD important> at least in my own mind. Its been 90 minutes and the amount of eyes on this diary is pathetic.

For me Personally, what good is Thanksgiving without really having something to be grateful about, and for me, thats OWS, the very birthplace of the Occupy Movement. If these people are going to put their hearts, minds and souls on the line, the LEAST we can do is feed them on Thanksgiving.

What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than to say thanks to OWS ?

1:40 PM PT: The Macys Parade wil be well to the north, here is a map

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
