I have free veggies to be brought to Occupy National Gathering in Sacramento. The veggies are in Ojai CA. Can anyone help get these veggies to NatGat? Bring empty boxes. Bring the veggies to Sacramento for a kitchen prep team to turn the ingredients into prepared meals for people at the event.

They might be able to help with trucks and stuff. I know they used to bring organic food to northern Calif from Ojai CA. They might know someone who can haul water too. Just a hope.

@sea Not sure if you will see this, as you have a new Loomio name. Would you be able to contact Fowler Bros.? I just looked on MapQuest; San Rafael is about 85 miles from Sacramento, near San Francisco. Here is the Yelp page: http://www.yelp.com/biz/fowler-brothers-distributors-of-natural-foods-san-rafael They do not seem to have a Web site, but do have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fowler-Brothers-Distributors-of-Natural-Foods/141599802547469

It seems to be in the projected route.

@juliaclark Is that Ojai or San Rafael on the route? I put Ojai on the map back when the offer first came through, was waiting for Sea to comment on working with Fowler Bros.
Just back now from #UUAGA, where we passed a resolution to (mostly) divest the endowment fund from fossil fuels while continuing shareholder action, and to study and work on the topic Escalating Inequality for the next 4 years—my Occupy and my UU worlds coming together, I hope.

This is the route with San Rafael and Ojai .

Brad did say in a letter that he wants to help in logistics and other things.
I am planning his location into my route .

I heard a while ago that Food not Bombs is coming. I'll look for that announcement. If someone knows a contact at Food Not Bombs..Can you get confirmation?

I have a friend here in Auburn who has an organic farm and would love to contribute, I could possibly check around and see if there is any other farms.

Excellent, @jeanniemoburg Keep us posted.

Before I pursue this in trying to contact more farms I would need to talk with someone. I may be doing workshops at the gathering so would not be able to help with the food during the gathering. What I would be glad to do is contact farms for donations. I would then need to pass it along to someone who can coordinate pick up. This would be in the Auburn area. I hate to ask for donations and there is no person to follow through. Anyone interested in conversation around this?

SG

Sally G Thu 3 Jul 2014 2:51PM

Sure; although I am in N.J. I will be on the ground during the gathering (carless). Let’s have a preliminary conversation and then we can loop in someone from Sacramento and/or allstr33ts. Can you e-mail me at natgat2014@interoccupy.net and I will send you phone number(s)?

SG

Sally G Tue 8 Jul 2014 6:39PM

@jeanniemoburg getting on train; will call; I know that I owe you one!
