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!!

Starting in 2015, the Wingnut Anarchist Collective will be hosting Open Hours for use of the radical library, zine library, board games, musical instruments, computer etc. On Wednesday nights from 6pm – 9pm.

Additionally, the Wingnut will be hosting vegan communal dinners at the same time, with food ready to eat at 6:30/7pm.
The idea behind the suppers and new Open Hours is to build community, and share the burden of cooking.
We are asking that everyone who comes to these suppers bring a $3 dollar donation towards the food costs. If you can not afford cash, bartering with food stuffs, chore doing etc. Will be welcome.
We ask that everyone who comes to eat pitches in to wash the dishes.

We also need folks to RSVP the day before so we know how much food to make. 804 300 0023 is a number you can text, or email wingnut_collective@yahoo.com

If there are guest chefs who would like to bottomline a meal please let us know, that would be great!!!

The first dates will be:
Wed. Jan. 7
Wed. Jan. 14
Wed. Jan. 21
Wed. Jan. 28

Dont forget to RSVP!!!!!!

21 years of Richmond Food Not Bombs, every Sunday at 4 in Monroe Park!!

Join the Wingnut Anarchist Collective for a winter potluck and gift exchange.
Everyone should bring a dish or non alcoholic beverahe to share, and 1 gift for the exchange. The gift can be new or used or ephemeral, like telling someone a story, playing them a song, or teaching them a skill. But please dont buy the gift new- regift or thrift or dumpster etc. Screw capitalism, lets not give those jerks anymore of our money for this event. We can share friendship and love without money honey.
This is from our friend who had the idea for this event originally :
” as to the trade day idea,here goes!

Most folks have never know the “joys of swapping stuff”,having been brought up in a cash/debit/credit structure society in the U.S. .A lot of the world ,however,still does a great deal of basic day to day economic function on barter.What I would propose is that the [Friday] after christmas the Wingnut host a sort of trade gathering for folks that want to try something different . Doesn’t matter what you have to trade,just no cash/bitcoins/etc. ,make it something that you can bring and show that there is more to trading than just doing a set of numbers. Skills,stories,materials to make things,books,tools,ideas,geegaws and gimcracks!Trading has a LOOONNNGGG history of being the way that ideas got passed around since our ancestors first started walking out of southern Africa,and it sure would be neat to see how some of you younguns do in the “call and response” test that is at the core of it all.So, will you take up a skillset that can keep you from starving and aid in your travels no matter where you are and what language the locals speak?Could be fun,and always is an adventure!”

All ages and sober event!!!
Friday December 26 from 7pm – midnight

Richmond Food Not Bombs will be doing the prep and cooking for Sunday meals at the Wingnut Anarchist Collective every Sunday in December from 12:30- 3:45 then leaving for Monroe Park to share the meal.

Ok folks, hold onto your hats. We have got a change up with Richmond Food Not Bombs. One house in the rotation has dropped out so we are now going to be hosting for the month of September at The Wingnut Anarchist Collective 2005 Barton Avenue. October and November will be planned to be at  3100 1st Avenue. September is Mo’s birthday and marks their 12th year of some sort of involvement with Food Not Bombs. Come celebrate with Mo by coming out to cook on Sundays in September at 12:30.

Look out for notice of a Food Not Bombs meeting soon so we can figure out a long term schedule and maybe a new house to add back into the rotation.
We need to keep strong because we are still facing the privatization of Monroe Park and possible issues from that coming up next Summer. Momentum must be built and allies made.

New and old friends and family are invited to a potluck on Friday September 5th starting at 6pm.

Bring a dish or non-alcoholic beverage to share!

We should have the coals on the grill warmed up for you, so bring something to throw on if you desire!

All ages, sober event.

We are recommending this short zine written by our friends, which is a brief analysis of the fast food industry from an intersectional lense.  We at the Wingnut have been involved locally with the Fight for $15 Fast Food Workers movement. We support workers because a)some of us are fast food workers or other low paid workers, b) not supporting workers would get us no closer to social change, and c) we have to build movements to have movements, and create relationships with people to build the community that is necessary to transform the world.

But at the end of the day, we are anti-capitalists. Not all of us are vegan, but the environmental impacts, health impacts, animal suffering, exploitation of low income people of color and more mean that the Fast Food Industry is a major negative impact on our communities. Improving the working conditions and raising wages is something that all industries need and all workers deserve.  However, the Fast Food Industry is specifically so rotten, so toxic, that changes to labor will never be enough.

We will continue to support the Fight for $15 and other worker’s movements, but we will also always keep the bigger picture in mind. Low wages and bad working conditions are just a symptom of the rotten exploitative attitude of the fast food industry. We need to attack the roots.

Check out the zine, read more about it, and help us create a vision for a world without Fast Food, and where our communities are healthy and sustainable!
