Jim from the Wobbly Kitchen in Cass Park

Here is a portrait of a man …a humble man.. who is following a mission..to help others.

I have been hearing about Jim for years so it was a pleasure to do a Street Store in September in Cass Park and finally meet him to put name to face.. and i am so glad I did .. i instantly felt comfortable with him.. i had seen images of him and he had on his straw hat and big moustache.

Jim Rehberg feeds scores of folks he calls Friends and Forgotten Workers, in Cass Park. The self-taught chef, a UAW member, got his start during the newspaper strike in 1995, when the Wobbly Kitchen cooked for “ox roasts” to raise money for the embattled drivers and journalists. It was simple food—spaghetti, beef, iceberg salads—to fill the stomach and a need.

The Wobbly kitchen from their facebook page is about :

So that no one is confused or mislead into thinking We are just a happy band of volunteers who like to work for free and give food away. The motivations and inspirations of why we do what we do can be found in part in the preamble of the IWW constitution

The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among millions of the working people and the few, who make up the employing class, have all the good things of life.

Since hunger and want are found in abundance in the City of Detroit and the State of Michigan We have little choice than to share what we can to ease the burden of those Forgotten Workers.

If you want to help they are in the park the 2nd and 4th Sunday to help feed the people.
If you have time or supplies..pitch in they can always use the help and they will welcome you as a friend. It is a community effort that you can be apart of!..they get there around 11am and are wrapping up by 1pm…
hope you can make it down
