Last minute notice, but the highly respected, awesome Boston organization Food Not Bombs are celebrating their 30th Anniversary (dubbed “Soupstock”) with a huge celebration on Boston Common tomorrow, May 23, from 12-5pm.
Food Not Bombs was born out of a collective in Boston/Cambridge in the early 80′s and has since spread all over the world. They’ve been providing free (delicious and vegan) food to Boston area people and helping the homeless for all these years. A very, very worthy cause, so get down to the Boston Common and show your support!
(from their press release):
“Join us for a one-day celebration to commemorate the Food Not Bombs movement, birth, and history. Live music, theater, workshops, interactive table spaces, exhibits, kids activities, a picnic, and more will be featured throughout the day with the purpose of raising awareness of poverty, issues of food security, and homelessness. Please join us May 23rd 2010 to celebrate 30 years of community, homeless advocacy and free food. The mission of Food Not Bombs is to serve free, weekly community meals to those in need. Two meals take place in Boston each week, including Friday from 4-6pm at the Park Street MBTA station and Sunday from 3-5pm at the Central Square MBTA station. All food served is nutritious and vegan. The organization functions in a non-hierarchical manner and everyone share leadership responsibility. Food Not Bombs got its start in Cambridge in 1980, but has since spread to all corners of the globe. Currently, there are over 1,000 autonomous chapters of Food Not Bombs.”share this:
