It’s been a minute.

Hey folks, it’s been just over half a year since the last update and there’s a bunch to talk about.

For the past three months we’ve had consistent weekly meetings at Encuentro 5, and in the past month and a half we’ve had three meals, there’s a lot of momentum behind the group right now and new members are always welcome to join us at a meeting or meal!

We served food at the Climate Change March, the First Night Against All Wars, the MLK Day March, and this Saturday (January 30th, 2016) we’re putting another meal under our belts in Central Square.

We’ll be serving food from the concrete island at the intersection of Prospect and Mass Ave at 1:00PM. Everyone is invited to eat and/or serve food. For those looking to do some hanging out indoors, anyone with the desire and means to help cook the meal is welcome to join us at my (Joseph!) house in east Cambridge. I’m not too keen on posting the address here, but I’ll send it your way if you join the event page or shoot me an email at whatever@bummer.city (yes that’s my real email address).

I could go on and on about the positive momentum this group is having now, but to keep things short, come out to a meeting or meal, and join the Facebook Group to stay in the loop with what’s going on.

See you Saturday!

We’ve been busy; After supporting protests including the March on Monsanto, Black Live’s Matter protests, and First Night Against the Wars, we’re getting pumped for more!

 At the same time, some members have moved on, or will be soon, and we still need more core members. If you are at all interested, please come to our next meeting to learn more and get involved.
At our next meeting, we’ll be planning for the June 12th Dyke March event, as well as continuing to work on resources, and so on.
Please RSVP to our event, or if you cannot attend, take a moment to invite your friends!

FNB Boston is planning to help share food, particularly that perfectly good food “diverted from the waste stream” at two upcoming events. Please come help us organize logistics for these events, so we have a successful day of sharing the message of solidarity while feeding all our friends!

RSVP to the event/share it around: https://www.facebook.com/events/1578404692410342/

Things have thawed out around Boston and it’s time to turn up the heat for food justice!

The meeting is this coming Tuesday @ 8:30 PM at Encuentro 5 [right by Park St Station].

Please come along! Feel free to bring food and/or your ideas to share with the group! Up for discussion this coming meeting is no small matter: we must elect a new treasurer and contact person(s), as the current leader of these efforts is stepping down.

Please come and help us forge the strongest-yet generation of waste-conscious, war-machine/destruction-opposed, food-and-life-sharing self-structured network & awareness group we can be! Or just help us fill some growling stomachs along the way :-)

The growing core of Boston FNB’ers would like to invite all that are interested in keeping the movement growing to a potluck-style meeting at Encuentro 5 (click link for directions), December 11th at 7PM.

This is a meeting of Food Not Bombs for all members – 1st-timers and all those who continue to build upon our history – at which we will do what we do best: share food!

Meet with us to discuss kitchens to cook out of, recent meals, sites for food donations, and also enjoy food with others who share our belief that food is a right, not a privilege.

Should you be able to bring a meal, please do so, but if you can’t, come along and help us consider methods for improving our food-sharing ways. (Please label your meal accordingly – e.g. vegan, potential allergins, etc.)

Please comment on, share, or RSVP to the Facebook Event Posting to help spread the word!

Food Not Bombs Boston had a great showing at the recent HONK! Festival in Cambridge and Somerville. After the Sunday Parade, we served a meal in Winthrop Square near Harvard: root vegetable roast, eggplant stir fry, hearty soup, and more rice than you can shake a head of cabbage at! We didn’t make a float this year (shout out to FNBers of old!) but we did have our trusty sign and small-scale banner, as well as the bike cart looking as magnificent as ever in the background.

It was great to see everyone and all of the amazing bands at HONK! We handed out flyers and talked to people about using free vegan food to fight hunger, poverty, and the unjust systems we live in. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen.

We’re continuing to plan more meals, food runs, meetings, and shows of activist solidarity this fall, so stay tuned! For more frequent (but not too frequent!) updates, subscribe to our email list at http://fnbboston.org/sign-up-for-the-fnb-email-list/

New members welcome!

We are currently looking for new members – FNB Boston needs your help! If you have an interest in joining our cause to help support one another, in a fight against poverty and hunger, rather than demolishing “others” with bombs and/or capitalist subjugation, please email us at fnbboston [at] gmail.com or call 508-44FOOD3.  We have two upcoming meetings, open to the general public: the first is at the Lucy Parsons Center, in Jamaica Plain which is scheduled to take place 10/9/2014, and the next is scheduled for 10/16/2014 (location yet to be finalized). You can also join our mailing list at RiseUp.Net to receive regular meeting and other announcements, or join the discussion on our Facebook group at Boston Food Not Bombs.
