In The Works, an anti-authoritarian and anti-art collective, has been the Food Not Bombs cook house for the Monday serving at 16th and Mission Plaza for the past year. They are now fighting eviction by new owner, Rick Holman of Asher Insights, for opening up their space to community groups like Food Not Bombs.Accused of “illegally occupying” their unit for “subletting or assigning” their space to groups such as Food Not Bombs and for hosting community events such as the Alter Anarchist Book Fair. Community spaces and organizations of the poor, homeless, and marginalized are the first to feel the blows of gentrification when outside forces try to mold a neighborhood into a profitable business venture. Displacement begins when our community’s right to free, healthy food is attacked by landlords such as Rick Holman.
The Monday cookhouse could use some extra help! Food prep, pick-ups, everything. Contact Michael at email@example.com or call 415-503-1478. Or show up at 3265 17th Street #204 between 3 and 8 pm on Monday.
