Welcome to the Occupy Wall Street Kitchen!

The Occupy Wall Street Kitchen, lovingly known as “The People’s Kitchen,” is a revolutionary space for breaking bread and building communities that is open to everyone!

From our camp kitchen in Liberty Plaza, we feed the 99%, providing a space for occupiers, bankers, farmers and the homeless to share delicious meals and good conversation. We nourish the grassroots movement to free America from corporate control and create a fairer economic system for hardworking people.

We are committed to building a more equitable society and furthering the food justice movement by changing patterns of consumption in New York City and beyond. Through our work at OWS, we unite local farmers and small businesses with families and communities that sustain the movement. Our network of supporters is a diverse group of small businesses, family-run farms, community groups and individuals who share a common vision of a better, more sustainable America.

In farming, cooking, serving and eating, we are imagining a new American Dream.

Let's do this together!


Everyone at the kitchen is a volunteer. We strive to create an open and non-hierarchical environment that can put everyone's talents and dedication to good use!

If you'd like to volunteer at the kitchen, the easiest way is to come find us in Liberty Square.

You can also email us at occupiedkitchen@gmail.com.

Please know it may take a little time to respond- we don't have reliable internet access in the square, and we're just getting started, so we spend a lot of time keeping up with daily needs! Please be patient, or better yet, drop by to introduce yourself and remind us!
