Pricey? Yes.

But supports 2 great local causes in one fell swoop.

Please spread the word!

New Normal Apparel has done a really nice job of reaching out to connect with community groups and they are brand new!

This year Food Not Bombs will be tabling at the 3rd annual Jonny Z Fest on Shields Avenue, on the same block as Joe’s Inn, between Grove and Hanover.

This will be an opportunity to fundraise, talk to future volunteers, and celebrate the memory of someone who used to participate in Richmond Food Not Bombs.
The Fest is from 12-5, so we will need volunteers from 11-6 to setup and cleanup. Be prepared to talk to lots of people and tell them about Food Not Bombs.
Anyone who wants to make things to sell ahead of time is encouraged to- crafts, shirts, etc. Also we can use a donation jar and more fliers!

More about the Event: (more…)

Last night was the Food Not Bombs fundraiser dinner at Cafe Gutenberg in Shockoe Bottom. I think it is fair to say that the event was a success. I don’t have the final numbers, but we definitely raised over 500 dollars for Richmond Food Not Bombs. There were many Food Not Bombs supporters and friends at the event. It was really nice to have a fancy 6 course meal with so many friends. Kontra spoke briefly about the history and importance of Food Not Bombs.

If you missed it, don’t worry, we will hopefully have more events like this one in the future!! And we will always be accepting donations. Checks can be written out to “Food Not Bombs” and mailed to PO Box 6025 Richmond, Va 23222!!!
