Top 5 Foods to Bring to Occupiers
5. Compostable plates and cutlery. While the occupiers seem to be pretty heroic, they're not actual Super Heroes who can turn their hands into knives and shit. Speaking of, they're also looking for chef knives, bread knives, serving utensils, disinfectant wipes, and ice chests. Basically, anything you'd need to cook and eat while camping they can use.
4. Warm drinks, especially at night when it's cold. Activist Rachel Zurer brought carafes of homemade hot chocolate to Occupy Denver, and was greeted like a wartime hero. She writes, "I'm not that good an activist, you know? But I made hot chocolate. It was tiny. But it helped."
3. Vegan food. Vegans are the other 1 percent, so this works on many levels, especially when you consider how messed big ag is. Susie Cagle, a reporter covering Occupy Oakland for Alternet, says:
I would actually recommend if possible that people bring food, especially hot and vegan, straight to occupy. They aren't cooking on site right now so cooked food is at a premium. I think everyone is out of the clink now and they're here and hungry -- and many are vegan.
