Eater: The People’s Kitchen Collective’s Radical Approach to Feeding the Masses


In 2015, Saqib met Sita Bhaumik and Joceyln; and together with their efforts, the People’s Kitchen became the People’s Kitchen Collective. Sita, an artist and teacher at A Taste of Resistance at the California College of the Arts, wanted not just to make food look and taste delicious, but to build a dining experience that she could identify and connect with, one that was no longer Eurocentric. A child of Indian, Japanese and Colombian heritage, Sita has used her multiracial and multiethnic background to guide her through this process of discovery and learning while she studies the food and traditions that helped give her family strength during their immigration journey and through the difficult times when they were isolated in the Japanese internment camps of World War II.
