3SidedWhole Spring Event: 

Kitchen donations needed

by Kitchen coordinator Kerry Romero
Greetings all. I will be making magic in the community kitchen at the event this year, but I will need your help to do it.

First off, food stores are severely depleted out there, so we will need lots of help with food donations.

  • Friday night I will be making a large batch of pasta 
  • Saturday night a large batch of beans and rice 
  • I already have the pasta, and some sauce as well as the beans and rice. Anything you can bring to help complete these meals would be greatly appreciated.
  • Sunday Morning pancake breakfast we are in need of additional donations
  • As always finger foods, side dishes, snacks, salads and drinks are always welcome as well as sandwich makings for lunch.
  • There will be both carnivore and vegetarian dishes available, but if you have specific needs such as vegan or gluten free, please bring those options with you.
  • Volunteer shifts are also available to help out with food prep, cleaning and such. 
  • Please bring you own plates, bowls or utensils pots and pans. Be sure to bring your own blisswear = plates cups, and silverware.
  • You will be responsible for your own dishes, please wash them and take them with you when you are done eating.
  • As most of you know, the kitchen out there is extremely rustic. Washing dishes is a small chore, but if everyone leaves their dishes in the sink, they can get out of control quickly, leaving us unable to our jobs safely and cleanly. 
  • The meals there are an ever changing thing, and whatever you can bring will be turned into magic by someone along the way. Also, the kitchen generates a lot of trash that we are all responsible for helping to take out, so please grab a bag to take with you when you stop by the kitchen to say your farewells. Here is a list of items we could use your help with:
  • ​Aluminum foil 
  • Spices
  • Cooking oil
  • Fruit toppings
  • Syrup
  • Tomato sauce
  • Canned tomatoes
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Breads 
  • Lunch meat
  • Cheese
  • Eggs 
  • Potatoes
  • Butter
  • LOTS of water
  • Beverages
  • If you want it on your pancakes, bring it.
  • Seventh Generation dish soap
  • Side dishes
  • Salads
  • Snacks
    Anything else that you would love to share!


The weather for this event will be in the 90's during the day and 50's to 60's at night. Plan your wardrobe accordingly.
