We regret to report that today, Wednesday November 25, one of our staff tested positive for COVID-19. Both our Free Lunch program and our regular business are suspended for now.

This employee hasn’t worked since last week, but we will nevertheless be closed until our staff can complete a full round of testing. If you have any questions or concerns, please email geerstreetgarden@gmail.com.

We appreciate all your support during this very fraught period of time, and we look forward to seeing you when we return.

November 4, 2020: what’s up

This 91-pound pumpkin, so kindly donated to our Durham Free Lunch Initiative by Meadow Lane Farm, represents the US electorate. The seeds are unaffiliated voters and the skin represents mail-in ballots. Follow me so far? Good. Once it is chopped up, roasted, and made into soup, and that soup is consumed and excreted, we will have a full understanding of who won Michigan and why neither party can offer anything to the American people beyond pointless platitudes and dull propaganda.


Good. Let’s begin.



Remember food? Remember restaurants? Remember how we used to think nothing of going out in public to put food in our faces and ignore our rotten kids for 90 minutes? Remember? Remember when you used to start your servers tip at 15% in your head and then take points off for every tiny flub or perceived indignity? Remember when waiters treated you like a big man so consistently that you almost believed it for a second?


Tonight’s special is homemade ravioli filled with fresh local spinach, ricotta & Parmesan cheese, served with marinara & garlic bread. Come relive the glory days.
