The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday — because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.
For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad.
They will also provide directions to local soup kitchens for the vagrants, criminals and other freeloaders who have been descending on Zuccotti Park in increasing numbers every day.
“We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, said Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer.
Many of those being fed “are professional homeless people. They know what they’re doing,” said the guard at the food-storage area.
For I was hungry and you said, “We’re trying to change the world here so hit the road! There’s a soup kitchen eight blocks that way! Hit them up for free grub, derelict!” I was thirsty and you said, “Cry me a river! I’ve got a doctorate in applied linguistics, I can’t find a job in my chosen field and it’s all because of Wall Street!!” I was a stranger and you told me to keep moving because you had way more important problems to worry about than whether or not some homeless guy had a warm place to sleep.
