Proposal: Build/Strike Kitchen + Kinky Kiez Cooperation

Melinda Gonzalez
Melinda Gonzalez Public Seen by 124

I wanna propose (as kitchen lead) that, during build and strike, 5-6 Kinky Kiez members each take one or two kitchen shifts to ensure there are 3 volunteers in the kitchen to cook/serve/clean up during lunch and dinner. This will allow the current kitchen volunteers to attend to other kitchen duties like shopping and sorting out food during build this relieves the current volunteers because we can:

-Take occasional breaks/ sit down when we get too hot.

-Always have 3 people to cook/serve/clean up each meal

-“Kitchen fluffer” Leo can relieve the other 2 fluffers for breaks and help make fluffing snacks as originally planned.

Kinky Kiez is requesting meals. KK will pay for the extra food costs (6.50€pp/day). It’s been proposed that they should take their share of food back to their Kiez (or elsewhere) to

a) keep the space around the kitchen/ Deine Mudda from getting too crowded and

b) solve the issue of having to order more armbands for meals.

Myself and Olivia will organise shifts around shopping trips once the transport schedule is finalised.

This is an alternative to volunteering another single person or people to take shifts during build and strike. Although this would be simpler, a collaboration means helping another Kiez, which is nice 😊 Comments? Objections?

So, there seem to be no major objections and I'm willing to put in the extra work to get some extra support at the burn. Thanks to everyone who commented!

Hey thanks for putting in the work in this.

There is no past experience I think on this kind of Kiez /orga collaboration. It's cool however to me sounds like a lot of unnecessary work at this point but I trust your decision will take us to a good place.🤗

From volunteer coord. Green light as long as the kinkys don't flirt too much with the general volunteers drinks 😜

Thank you!! ❤️

Thank you, Otto! Gotta remember the "KISS" principle in the future. I do tend to over-complicate things. But Olivia is happy to organise her people and I saw she knows what she is doing re:kitchen at another burn, probably more than me, so in this case there's a bonus for me in having another experienced person on board.

Gave this feedback privately: I think it's late too make changes and these come with some complications, but you are the one most affected by it. I would also loop in @Franzi re: finance, because I'm not sure about the costs and about where they would have to send money.
❤️ U both, Mel and Olivia.

@Melinda Gonzalez i like the proposal and it sounds like it will make our job a lot easier, getting kitchenhelp and feeding 5-6 more people sounds to me like a good deal for both kiezes,
