Food Not Bombs

What is Food Not Bombs?

Food Not bombs is a fast growing revolutionary movement sharing free (mostly homegrown) food with hungry people while protesting war and poverty. Usually, the food is given away in a public area. By giving away food to the homeless and working poor in public places, Food Not Bombs brings the war on hunger to the public eye, forcing people to recognize the importance of helping people find shelter and feeding them.

Food Not Bombs is a non-violent, all-volunteer group that has no formal leaders and strives to include everyone in the decision-making process. Each group of volunteers goes out and recovers food that would have been thrown out and makes hot, fresh meals in public places.

Food Not Bombs, has hundreds of chapters around the world. The Food Not Bombs movement began in Boston in 1980 by an activist involved in the anti-nuclear movement. For over thirty years, the movement has worked to end hunger and has supported actions to stop the globalization of the economy and to end the destruction of our planet.

Every Food Not Bombs chapter has different kitchen settings. Some chapters uses members' homes to cook, while others get permission from churches, and some chapters use propane ovens to cook right at the site.

Aid and Relief

Food Not Bombs also provides aid and relief to survivors of natural disasters and terrorist attacks. During the first three days after the San Francisco earthquake in 1989, Food Not Bombs provided hot meals to earquake survivors. Following the September 11 World Trade Center terrorist attacks on America, Food Not Bombs was one of the first organizations to provide help. Food Not Bombs was also one of the first to provide relief to the survivors of Hurricane Katrina and the Asian Tsunami.

Food Not Bombs works in coalition with groups like Earth First!, The Leonard Peltier Defense Committee, Homes not Jail, Anti-Racist Action, In Defense of Animals, the Free Radio Movement and other organizations on the cutting edge of positive social change.
