Food not Bombs
Food Not Bombs believes that society and government should value human life over material wealth. Many of the problems in the world stem from this simple crisis in values. By giving away food to people in need in public places, we directly dramatize the level of hunger in this country and the surplus of food being wasted. We also call attention to the failures of this society to support those within it while funding the forces of war and violence, including the police. We are committed to the use of non-violent direct action to change society. It is by working today to create sustainable institutions that prefigure the kind of society we want to live in, and that build a vital and caring movement for progressive social change.
We begin cooking at 12pm every Saturday at 12pm using the CLO kitchen (NW 15th Street and NW 2nd Avenue) and start serving at the Downtown Plaza at 3:30pm (approximately). If you would like to help out, please feel free to come at any time. We not only need people to help cook and serve, but clean up after the days events (usually begins around 5-6pm).
