“We win over hearts and minds through the belly, with great food out of the bin.”
Amsterdam seems peaceful on the surface, but in actual fact there is a battle going on. A battle to maintain the freedom we crave, that so many generations have sacrificed and fought for. A battle to stop this Western ‘sophistication’ becoming the Orwellian, Capitalist Clone-Dome we actually Don’t want but are fed.
Guerilla Kitchen is in this battle. Behind enemy lines and in their faces. But we don’t just feed the warriors for freedom – nourishing their bellies and strengthening their hearts in the face of this huge task, we also feed those on the other side. With our dumpster-dived trickery we expose them to the lies of their own Machine, we show them the magic of reality, the tastiness of a discarded fruit, re-valued and shared with a smile. We win over hearts and minds through the belly, with great food out of the bin.
The Guerilla Kitchen Operation was made possible because of the opportunities in this wonderful city. With every soup, sandwich and smoothie we make and share, we are fighting to keep it that way! Our vision has now grown to take on the world in the next stage: Bellies Beyond Borders.
WHAT WE DO
We gather amazing abandoned food, to prepare delicious dishes of all kind for the people of Amsterdam.
We are getting in contact with stores and restaurants directly, and we are baking and cooking up a royal storm and ambushing residents of Amsterdam with deliciousness rescued from the trash to rescue the tastebuds.
WHERE YOU CAN FIND US?
Keep an eye out for our public food fiestas! We will publish on this page the places were we will serve our dishes! It’s mainly public places or local community centers. You are very very welcome to come and enjoy our food!
We are ALWAYS happy to get invited to new places. Beam us up with a message on the page! :)
Our basic ingredient is lots of love.
WHY WE DO THIS
In the dumpsters behind supermarkets, on your plate, embedded in the institutions of monopolizing Supermarkets and the Food Industry itself.
Long time ‘dumpster-divers’, we realize that this action merely addresses the symptoms of the problem, rather than the cause, but is still a fun activity and way of life.
Always we are looking for new people to help us out. Do you love cooking, chatting with peeps or scavenging? Rad! Join our team! Sent us a message with your idea or what you’d like to do..
