Basically...

For those who don't know, Food Not Bombs is a radical leftist organization based around the food justice movement. The basic principle it operates on is simple: all people have a right to healthy food. Food is a necessity. There are so many starving people, but so much food is thrown out every day in grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants, etc. Food Not Bombs gets food donations from local establishments, cooks it and serves it weekly. Dumpster-diving is another FNB-approved way to find recoverable, good food that would otherwise go to waste.

Food Not Bombs also provides food to those at protests and demonstrations -- hence, the "Not Bombs" part. FNB has a history of supporting progressive social and political movements.

Food Not Bombs serves vegetarian meals only.

Sure...the only issue for me at the moment is a very unpredictable schedule.

Comment by Jackie on January 18, 2012 at 6:52pm

would you be willing to meet just to brainstorm and stuff, with no pressure to take  action or anything? i'd be willing to do that, just to knock around ideas. small and slow steps to perhaps, begin or not. we can see where it goes :) let me know

Here's something I wrote on the topic a while back: http://planetgreen.discovery.com/home-garden/bring-food-notbombs-co...

I've been thinking about this, and I am not sure if I would be able to organize such a meeting/ org, especially seeing as this is not my group and the fact that there are only like two or three people willing to even meet up.

In any case, starting an org such as this would be very, very complicated and probably take up a lot of money which I don't have.

When will the Jan. 21 meeting be confirmed, is 3pm the agreed upon time, and how long do you think it will last? Thanks...
