We last mobilised for the March 26th protests and managed to deliver a crate full of home made flapjacks to the 140 people being detained by police outside Fortnum & Masons.
Action Kitchens are set up to provide sustaining meals and/or snacks to people taking part in demonstrations, protests and direct actions. There are a number of existing kitchen groups such as Anarchist Teapot (Brighton), Veggies (Nottingham), and Rampenplan (Netherlands). There are also various places where Food Not Bombs groups are active and sometimes organise meals for protests.
Organising catering allows protests to last longer and for those involved to stay energised and active. This is an effective tactic used to counter attempts by police to frustrate and exhaust protesters, and ultimately suppress protest.
