“Food Not Bombs recovers and shares free vegan or vegetarian food with the public without restriction in over 1,000 cities around the world to protest war, poverty and the destruction of the environment. Each group is independent and invites everyone to participate in making decisions for their local chapter using the consensus process. Food Not Bombs is dedicated to taking nonviolent direct action to change society so no one is forced to stand in line to eat at a soup kitchen expressing a commitment to the fact that food is a right and not a privilege. With over a billion people going hungry each day how can we spend another dollar on war?”

COOKING: Thursdays 3:00 PM and Saturdays 8:00 AM at the ECM (1204 Oread)
SETUP: Thursdays 5:45 PM and Saturdays 9:30 AM at the ECM (1204 Oread)
With the closing of the Salvation Army’s food service, there is currently no regular dinner service in Lawrence. A group of concerned community members have organized a local Food Not Bombs chapter to begin to fill that void. We will now be serving every Thursday at 6:30pm in South Park, near the intersection of Massachusetts and North Park St. We invite everyone to come to South Park and share a meal with us. As there is a real need for a dinner service in Lawrence, we hope to expand the operation. If you’d like to help us meet this need by contributing labor or food, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
