Food Not Bombs Boston had a great showing at the recent HONK! Festival in Cambridge and Somerville. After the Sunday Parade, we served a meal in Winthrop Square near Harvard: root vegetable roast, eggplant stir fry, hearty soup, and more rice than you can shake a head of cabbage at! We didn’t make a float this year (shout out to FNBers of old!) but we did have our trusty sign and small-scale banner, as well as the bike cart looking as magnificent as ever in the background.
It was great to see everyone and all of the amazing bands at HONK! We handed out flyers and talked to people about using free vegan food to fight hunger, poverty, and the unjust systems we live in. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen.
We’re continuing to plan more meals, food runs, meetings, and shows of activist solidarity this fall, so stay tuned! For more frequent (but not too frequent!) updates, subscribe to our email list at http://fnbboston.org/sign-up-for-the-fnb-email-list/
