This is a recurring monthly reminder about LI Food Not Bombs. LIFNB coordinates weekly food shares at four locations (so don't worry if it looks like this event date is past—the food shares are ongoing). Scroll down for details.
New volunteers are always welcome. LIFNB rescues & shares food from local grocery stores. They cook up, transport and serve huge quantities of vegan food. Their slogan is "Solidarity, not charity."
LIFNB says, "The best way to get involved is to participate. Just show up to a Long Island Food Not Bombs Food Share near you. We're always looking for more helping hands, plus by coming down to a Food Share you can get a feel for what you'd like to be doing."

LIFNB says: "If there isn't a Food Not Bombs in your neighborhood, lets make one together. At the outset, starting a Food Not Bombs might seem like more than you can handle. Work on the basics, taking one step at a time. There is no need to feel pressured into accomplishing everything all at once. It might take a couple of weeks to get things rolling or it may take months. One person cannot be a Food Not Bombs group, but one person can start one and we can show you how."
