At this year’s Empowering Women of Color Conference at UC Berkeley, Kearny Street Workshop organized a workshop with Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik that provided examples and resources for combining your love of food and commitment to activism. Tonight’s show features three people who are feeding the masses:


  • Sita organizes home-cooked dinners serving 50 or more people. This serves as a bi-monthly fundraiser for Leftwing, an anti-imperialist, community-based soccer club;
  • Saqib Keval is founder of The People’s Kitchen, a five-year-old, sliding-scale, community restaurant project that does political education and grassroots mobilization through food service;
  • And Elizabeth Sy is co-founder of Banteay Srei, which provides social support, healing arts, reproductive health education, life skills-building, and leadership development for young Southeast Asian women impacted by sexual exploitation. One of these strategies is to connect young women to each other and their elders through cooking. She also cooked for the Bike Down, an amazing three-day bike tour that raised money for Cycles of Change.
  • To start things off we talk with Francis Wong, co-founder of Asian Improv aRts which is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
