Food Not Bombs needs some money!

If you are able to donate money or host a fundraiser for us this spring, please let us know. Even sharing this event would be super helpful!

We can always use volunteers to help chop, cook, clean, wash dishes, organize, post fliers around town etc.

We can also always use donations of paper plates, paper cups, plastic forks and spoons, rice, oil, olive oil, vinegars, sugar, flour, pasta, spices, oats, etc. These can be dropped off at any of the cooksites or the Wingnut (2005 Barton Avenue).

If you would like to help us with a fundraiser we could certainly use that help as well. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation there is a way to do that too. You can send a check to the Virginia Organizing Project (snail mail ONLY NOT ONLINE) and specify Richmond Food Not Bombs in the memo. To donate by mail, please send your check, made out to Virginia Organizing, to: 703 Concord Avenue, Charlottesville, VA 22903

Please get in touch at 804 300 0023 or mokarnage@gmail.com for more information.

Food is a Right, Not a Privilege!!!!
Food Not Bombs has been serving a free, vegan meal every Sunday in Richmond’s Monroe Park for almost 21 years now. We go out regardless of the weather or holidays and have only missed 2 Sundays in all these years. Everything is done on a volunteer and donation basis. We can really use the help and allies as we face many potential issues due to the recent privatization of Monroe Park (a thirty year lease for a dollar a year to the Monroe Park Conservancy), which threatens the ability of poor and houseless people to be in Monroe Park and our ability to serve free food with a potential year long park shut down, private security, and $35 permit application fee. We do not know when any of this might happen because the MPC is a non transparent private entity, but we do plan to resist and we need your help! For more info on the renovation plans please get in touch!!
