RICHMOND FOOD NOT BOMBS

ABOUT US

.

Food Not Bombs is an all-volunteer global movement that shares free vegetarian and vegan meals as a protest against war and poverty. Our ideology is corporate and government priorities are skewed. There is no need to allow hunger to persist in the midst of abundance. Each chapter collects surplus food that would otherwise go to waste from grocery stores, bakeries, markets, and local farmers. Then we prepare community meals which are served for free to anyone who wants to eat. We do not pass judgment about food access or poverty levels

Principles of FNB:

  • Always vegan or vegetarian and free to everyone.

  • Each chapter is independent and autonomous and makes decisions using the consensus process.

  • Food Not Bombs is dedicated to nonviolence and sees "Food as a Right Not a Privilege."

 

Food Not Bombs works to call attention to poverty and homelessness in society by sharing food in public and physically accessible places. It is our intention to facilitate a community space for those who may or may not have access to nutritional foods in their daily lives, who may or may not have access to a kitchen, who may or may not be currently housed. Anyone who wants to cook may cook, and anyone who wants to eat may eat. Food Not Bombs strives to include everyone.
