A documentary recently completed by Baldeep on Richmond Food Not Bombs.
Please watch and share!
We are always looking for more organizers, more political events, more donations, more fundraisers, etc.

Thanks Baldeep!

We’d like everyone, but especially interested folks who have never been before, to join us Sunday the 20th for our first Greeting Day!

Have you heard about Richmond Food Not Bombs, but been unsure about approaching a group of strangers in an unfamiliar setting? Not sure what food access justice means? Do you have questions about the politics, history, or process of RVA Food Not Bombs?

Food Not Bombs is a loose worldwide conglomeration of local food justice organizations, who believe that food is a right and the conditions of poverty are a kind of structural violence. Richmond Food Not Bombs has been in operation for eighteen years, serving a vegan meal that is free to all and prepared from donations and food that would otherwise go to waste, on Sunday evenings in Monroe Park. RVA FNB has only ever missed two servings in their entire near-twenty-year history. Currently, we cook out of a collective in Barton Heights, from 12:30-3:45pm, and eat in Monroe Park from 4-5pm, on Sundays.

Members are always available to greet newcomers and answer questions at the regular Sunday cooking, eating, and cleanup- and anyone is welcome to attend any Sunday- but we’ve decided to begin a tradition of monthly Greeting Sundays, where a specific member volunteers to act as the greeter and guide for any newcomers. There will be nametags, literature, and a member available specifically to address your questions and explain the process, from grocery pickups all the way through to cleanup.

This week’s greeter will be Kat. If you have questions or concerns prior to Sunday, you can contact her at mcnealkc@vcu.edu, or through Facebook. You don’t need to show up right at 12:30, as this is an informal event. Feel free to come to the specified address from 12:30-3:30pm, and to the corner of Main and Belvidere at Monroe Park from 4-4:45pm. 2005 Barton Avenue!

There will be dogs at the cooking site, which is not wheelchair accessible, and lacks central heat, so dress warmly. Kids are welcome, provided they are supervised. Here is more information regarding accessibility and allergies: http://wingnutrva.org/2012/12/15/accessibilityallergies-at-the-wingnut/ .

Greeting Days will be held on the 3rd Sunday of each month. If you miss this one, there will be more!

Richmond Food Not Bombs will be holding a monthly organizational meeting on Sunday Dec. 2nd at 1pm.

Please come out if you are/want to be invilved with Richmond Food Not Bombs!

Potential Agenda Items include:

Fliers

Skalidays Tabling

Fundraising

Treasurer/bank stuff

Outreach

Monroe Park

etc.

The meetings are held at the cooking space, at 2005 Barton Avenue Richmond, VA 23222

Richmond Food Not Bombs Checklists/ Ideas about what the heck is going on

If you are thinking about coming to Richmond Food Not Bombs it would be awesome if you would take a minute to look at these lists and familiarize yourself with the basic process.

If you don’t have the time to read this before you come, that is ok, because we have copies posted at the Wingnut and copies you can take home!

Having these lists helps us to all be on the same page, without having to consult one person or group of people as being in charge. Because no one is in charge!
