Sisters’ Camelot is a collectively run 501c3 non-profit organization working to promote sustainability, strengthen community, and raise awareness about food justice. As an organization, we model a way to unconditionally share free healthy food in our communities.
Sisters' Camelot has been sharing free organic, non-GMO, and locally grown produce in the Twin Cities since 1997, through our Mobile Organic Food Share program. Each week we pick up 6-8000 pounds of fresh unsold produce from organic distribution warehouse, and share it for free in collaboration with diverse community centers in the Twin Cities. We meet people, discuss good nutrition, and share food. After sharing, cardboard boxes and plastic clamshells are recycled and overripe produce is composted, with minimal waste going into the waste stream.
Our Mobile Kitchen is a renovated Bluebird bus with a state-of-the-art whole foods kitchen. Our kitchen bus provides a uniquely experiential learning environment for people to become comfortable cooking with unfamiliar vegetables in unfamiliar quantities and to build community by preparing meals with and for one another. We cook together, and share for free with our community. Being mobile allows us to serve around the Twin Cities, and at different community events.
Sisters' Camelot is run by a collective of volunteers dedicated to rescuing food and sharing with our community. We started in 1997 as a grassroots solution to food waste and hunger in our communities, and continue to this day to touch the lives of many. We share unconditionally, we don't ask anyone to prove they are poor enough, because we believe healthy food is important for everyone. And volunteers work together every week to make this all happen.
