The local Ska band Murphy’s Kids puts on a holiday show every year called Skalidays. Every year the proceeds go to some community organization and they also collect canned goods for Food Not Bombs.
This year, Skalidays is going to be a 2 day event – Dec. 16th and Dec. 17th at Strange Matter. Doors at 4pm and music at 5pm both nights.
Usually Food Not Bombs attends the show and tables with literature/stickers/patches/donation jar. …Its a great outreach oppourtunity and the folks in Murphy’s Kids are super nice.
Typically FNB takes care of the food stuffs i.e. brining boxes to collect and store the donations, keep tabs on them at the door so they don’t overflow the front door space and eventually haul them away at the end.
We are going to need 2-3 people to table for each of those days if possible. We will need someone with a vehicle or a strong bike cart to carry the canned goods away. We probably don’t need more than 2-3 people a night, just because tabling at Strange Matter is pretty cramped. So get in touch soon if you want to help do outreach for Richmond Food Not Bombs!
There is a bottomliner already for Friday Dec. 16th, so if a couple other people want to table that night email firstname.lastname@example.org
Also please respond to email@example.com if you can bottomline Saturday Dec. 17th.
Tell your friends, bring some canned and dried goods (oil, rice, pasta, veggies, spices, etc.) and enjoy some of Richmond’s awesome local music!
