Food Not Bombs Needs Help!
31 May 2004
food not bombs seeks help
Hey, if anyone is looking for something to do, food not bombs is in a fairly dire position from a lack of people working on it. Lately, it has been an even more precarious situation than usual, with fewer than a handful of people holding together five meals a week. The thing is that some people are out of town, and some of us are hoping to leave town for a little while soon.

It would be great if this project could be based in a community of people who each do a little bit to get things done, rather than a few people doing a lot and feeling kind of trapped. That said, what I'm getting at is that starting in the second or third week of June and lasting for two or three weeks, it is probably going to be necessary for some new people to take responsibility for the meals on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The good news is that the infrastructure and tradition are already in place. Monday and Friday we cook at spontaneous celebrations and serve at stonybrook park and the common, resectively. Wednesday is generally prepared at someone's house, and is served in central square in Cambridge.

I know everyone has a lot of other things to do, but feeding people and making use of resources that would otherwise go to waste while calling attention to the absurdity of the fact that that these aren't the priorities of our fucking civilization is a fairly worthwhile tradition to continue. And it isn't all that hard if we work together. If you think you might be able to get involved, you could send an email back or preferably call 617-522-8277. If you don't already know, we can tell you where to get the vegetables and where we store them; you can even borrow the bike cart. If you are really ambitious and you want to temporarily take responsibility for a meal happening it would be a good idea to stop by this week to see how we usually do things.

thanks for reading, food not bombs
