Food Not Bombs (FNB) is the revolution today. Right now, people like you (and me, of course) are getting together, sharing free, vegetarian food in space temporarily reclaimed from municipal monotony and the daily drag. Here in Madison, our collective collects and cooks food weekly, providing a warm meal for folks on State St.
FNB is an idea that has spread throughout the world. Over 175 collectives in the Americas, Europe and Australia are currently working to feed anyone looking for a meal. But FNB is more than a good way to help alleviate the global hunger crisis; it's a way to do what we thought would only happen after the revolution. We work with other revolutionary organizations, serving good ole Food, Not Bombs, at their demonstrations and actions. Nothing like rice and beans to keep marchers marching and protesters protesting. Heck, FNB is itself a kind of a weekly direct action, using free food as a weapon against poverty, hunger and the incompetence (and repression) of the state.
Interested? Come by and share the food, or come to our weekly meetings, held every Thursday at 8:00pm at the Catacombs Coffeehouse (on the Library Mall, under St. Paul's church). Right now, the collective is working well; perhaps you want to start another Madison FNB, perhaps serving on a different day? That, my friend, would be great. DO IT.
The collective uses a consensus-based descision making process at our meetings. We do our best to keep our group and its activities free of hierarchy, sexism, racism and other biases. Everyone is welcome to eat, cook or meet with us; just respect the other folks there.
