Cuir Kitchen Brigade is a NYC based food/ agro project that is in solidarity with Puerto Rico’s sustainable agroecology movement, frontline communities affected by climate change and individuals oppressed by political regimes. This project originates from the reality that Cuir/Trans, colonized and therefore marginalized people in Puerto Rico and elsewhere have to carve out their own space due to cuirphobia, transphobia and machismo in our society. We support a food sovereign, debt free, independent Boriken!
Food Justice is healing justice. Our commitment is to supporting frontline communities and the activist fighting along side them. We receive donations and source local foods and cook meals as a form of mutual aid for those in need.
We host workshops on canning and fermentation as a way of educating Q/T/BIPOC individuals on ways to preserve foods in preparation for climate disasters. If you would like us to host a workshop with you feel free to reach out.
Along with all the other work we do, we also host solidarity trips in Latin america as a way of helping individuals from the various diasporas connect to ancestral land, learn traditional practices and build bridges of solidarity with those places.
