Rain or Shine

It rained yesterday, but that didn’t stop us. We set up a temporary shelter and served hot, healthy vegan food in Central Square, Cambridge like we do every Saturday afternoon. We had a hearty stew of rice, potatoes, beans, and lots of vegetables, and bread for days. Come on down to help us plan for upcoming events, or put on the next meal!

We also sent a couple of members down to Washington, DC this weekend. We contributed to the DC Food Not Bombs chapter’s weekly meal in Franklin Square Park. Since the city shut down D.C. General, there’s been increased need for services in the area. We also supported MassCann and DCMJ in their civil disobedience action at the White House.

Join us, and various groups from all over Boston, tomorrow afternoon at 60 State Street, Boston, MA to #MakeGEPay. We’ll provide some baked goods. Come make your voice heard. Demand accountability from your representatives for how your money’s spent.

    • Hi Linda! We share food with our community. Sometimes, some of our friends will also join us on Saturday afternoons and have shared gloves, socks, jackets, herbal tea, and provided basic first aid services as well. All of it is available to anyone, free of charge.

    • Oh! I should also mention that we serve food at protests and community events, in solidarity. The “Not Bombs” part of our name is just as important as the “Food” part. We think it’s unacceptable how much time, energy, and human life goes into militarism and war when we have real human needs that could be met instead with those resources. To that end, we provide material support when we can to efforts to resist militarism, colonialism, and imperialism.
