Much of the prep work will take place before the cooking period; don’t be alarmed by the short period of time.
Food Not Bombs is making rice, chili, and green salad to serve after the VCU Living Wage Campaign’s May Day rally for a living wage. The cooking will take place at Kat McNeal’s house, near the Lombardy Kroger. If you become lost, call Kat at 703-859-0393.
We need extra hands primarily for loading the vehicles, some vehicles to load, and some people who feel comfortable lifting heavy pots of hot food. We will serve at 1pm, at Monroe Park.
We also need a volunteer to print handbills for FNB, to provide to diners who may not have heard of us.

Sunday, June 30th 2013: Us at Richmond Food Not Bombs, The Wingnut Anarchist Collective and various other groups (do you want to join us?) shall be celebrating our own “Independance Day” in our own independant way.
Anarchy flags will be raised and we will be cooking out in Monroe Park that Sunday just like our usual Food Not Bombs routine! Come celebrate anti-militarism and our desire for the downfall of classim, racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism and all hierarchies! By the people, for the people.
Food Not Bombs will be bringing grills, vegan hot dogs, and other vegan cookout style foods, and convening in Monroe Park a little earlier than usual, in order to have the grills fired up to serve food around 4pm.
Food Not Bombs was started in the 1980′s in Boston as an action in opposition to war and the military industrial complex. We’ve had Food Not Bombs in Richmond for almost 20 years now.
If you or your organization would like to join us please do. Feel free to bring your own grills, charcoal, food to share, tables, entertainment, pickup trucks,non-alcoholic beverages, literature, banners, etc. or to share ours.
Let’s share Food in Monroe Park and share ideas in regards to a world independent from the Military Industrial Complex and Endless War.
This is a sober, all ages event.
We meet at the corner of Main and Belvidere in the park.
People with pickup trucks should bring them so we can put grills in the beds if necessary.
Musicians, puppeteers, etc. encouraged.

We’d like everyone, but especially interested folks who have never been before, to join us Sunday the 20th for our first Greeting Day!
Have you heard about Richmond Food Not Bombs, but been unsure about approaching a group of strangers in an unfamiliar setting? Not sure what food access justice means? Do you have questions about the politics, history, or process of RVA Food Not Bombs?
Food Not Bombs is a loose worldwide conglomeration of local food justice organizations, who believe that food is a right and the conditions of poverty are a kind of structural violence. Richmond Food Not Bombs has been in operation for eighteen years, serving a vegan meal that is free to all and prepared from donations and food that would otherwise go to waste, on Sunday evenings in Monroe Park. RVA FNB has only ever missed two servings in their entire near-twenty-year history. Currently, we cook out of a collective in Barton Heights, from 12:30-3:45pm, and eat in Monroe Park from 4-5pm, on Sundays.
Members are always available to greet newcomers and answer questions at the regular Sunday cooking, eating, and cleanup- and anyone is welcome to attend any Sunday- but we’ve decided to begin a tradition of monthly Greeting Sundays, where a specific member volunteers to act as the greeter and guide for any newcomers. There will be nametags, literature, and a member available specifically to address your questions and explain the process, from grocery pickups all the way through to cleanup.
This week’s greeter will be Kat. If you have questions or concerns prior to Sunday, you can contact her at email@example.com, or through Facebook. You don’t need to show up right at 12:30, as this is an informal event. Feel free to come to the specified address from 12:30-3:30pm, and to the corner of Main and Belvidere at Monroe Park from 4-4:45pm. 2005 Barton Avenue!
There will be dogs at the cooking site, which is not wheelchair accessible, and lacks central heat, so dress warmly. Kids are welcome, provided they are supervised. Here is more information regarding accessibility and allergies: http://wingnutrva.org/2012/12/15/accessibilityallergies-at-the-wingnut/ .
Greeting Days will be held on the 3rd Sunday of each month. If you miss this one, there will be more!

RVA Food Not Bombs October 2012 Can Drive
Food Not Bombs is calling for canned vegan vegetables to replenish their pantry. The drive lasts from today until Halloween.
There are three dropoff locations for canned goods, for now:
1. The Wingnut Anarchist Collective, at 2005 Barton Avenue. Leave the cans in the provided container on the stairs. This location is not wheelchair/mobility accessible.
2. Crenshaw House, at 919 West Franklin Street. There is a box immediately inside the door, clearly marked with a bright gold poster with an arrow. This location is also not wheelchair/mobility accessible. (The GSEX team, who helped get this lined up, has a Tumblr here.)
3. The VCU Office of Multiculturalism and Student Affairs, on the second floor of the Monroe Park VCU Student Commons. The box is bright red and marked with a poster, and immediately inside the office. The office itself is also marked with a bright gold poster, designating the spot a dropoff location. This location IS wheelchair/mobility accessible, by elevator.
If you know of another place that might be open to hosting a donation box, please message this Tumblr- especially if the location is further from VCU campus, and/or accessible.
Some good canned items to donate are: black, kidney, white, and pinto beans, tomatoes, peaches, corn, and tomato sauce. Every meal is vegan, so please check labels (especially for seasoned beans) to make sure there’s no meat, dairy, or egg products in the cans.
While Food Not Bombs prepares the bulk of each meal from fresh foods that grocery stores would otherwise throw away, sometimes non-perishable items are needed to augment the meal- and sometimes, a pickup is small or doesn’t come through. Food Not Bombs can also be called upon to cater for events; for example, FNB has catered the Virginia People’s Assembly, rePHRAME meetings, and IWW events.
Food Not Bombs cooks every Sunday at 12:30pm at the Wingnut Anarchist Collective (2005 Barton Avenue), and eats at 4:00pm in Monroe Park, at the intersection of Main and Belvidere streets. Everyone is welcome for either or both.
