This past weekend we participated in the 4th monthly Mobile Food Pantry. This is a project that is the joint effort of the WIngnut Anarchist Collective and the Central Virginia Food Bank. Throughout the month before the event, the Wingnut distributes vouchers for free groceries throughout Southern Barton Heights. One voucher per household. Then on the second Saturday of each month, the Food Bank drives out a huge and awesome truck to the parking lot next to the Goal Post Restaurant at 2400 North Avenue- at the intersection of West Graham and North Avenue. The Wingnuts then work with 2 folks from the Food Bank to set up tables full of food. At 1pm the distribution starts. People who have vouchers are given priority, since they are the people that we guaranteed access to the food. The only qualification for the vouchers is living in the Southern Barton Heights area. People who are disabled, elderly, or otherwise unable to come the day of and pickup the food (it is quite heavy) can contact the Wingnut ahead of time to arrange a delivery. We recommend bringing more than one person per voucher to pick up the food on the day, it is usually more than 1 heavy bag worth of groceries. Re-usable bags are also a really great thing to bring with you- paper ones don’t last long with the weight! (more…)

The Wingnut Anarchist Collective will be hosting a workshop on Security Culture on Saturday October 16th at 1pm at the Richmond Zine Fest. This workshop will be an opportunity for people new to activism/organizing/security culture to get introduced to the topic, as well as a chance for folks who already know about security culture to brush up on their practice and understanding of it.

The Richmond ZIne Fest will be at the Gay Community Center of RIchmond, which is attached to Diversity Thrift on SHerwood Avenue. More information can be found at http://www.richmondzinefest.org

Feel free to bring your questions and comments- but please let the facilitators establish guidelines first. (more…)
