Start this school year off in a positive way by bringing this inspiring speaker to your community. This is a great way to increase participation in your student organizations and other community efforts.  Keith will share the history, principles and current actions of the Food Not Bombs movement. You can start to organize this important presentation as soon as you return to school this fall. Contact the leaders of the student organizations on your campus and ask them if they would like to bring the tour to your school. You can help them book the venue, request a speakers fee and funds for transportation and promotion. If you are not attending school you can bring the presentation to your local book store, cafe or community center.

Thanks so much for your consideration. Please email us at [address removed] today to book a presentation in your community.


THE ELECT TO END HUNGER AND POVERTY TOUR with Food Not Bombs cofounder Keith McHenry.
Food Not Bombs, more than a meal, we are a movement with a message.

"I saw you speak at York U in Toronto! You are an inspiration!"
Amanda - York University Toronto, Canada

"Keith, people can't stop talking about your presentation here at ASU!"
Melissa - Appalachian State University



Artis, author and Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry will share the story, principles and current activities of the movement. Keith will also invite the audience to participate with their local activist organizations in helping change society. This is a great way to inspire participation in the projects that are important to you.

Most people would elect to end hunger and poverty but many of the people running for office have another agenda: cutting social services while transferring our tax dollars to wealthy military contractors and their corporate friends. While elected officials cut social services like unemployment insurance, food stamps, education, health care and other basic necessities they are also passing laws against the poor and their supporters.  Food Not Bombs volunteers are facing arrest in cities all over the United States as one in two Americans are struggling to survive. Food prices are increasing as crops fail because of the climate crisis. Oxfam and the United Nations are among the agencies  claiming that hunger will be on the increase possibly leading to civil unrest and violent police repression. These same elected leaders are preparing for wars and promoting the continued destruction of the environment. You can make a difference by bringing the Elect To End Hunger and Poverty Tour to you community.

Food Not Bombs is responding to the economic, ecological and political crisis by recovering, preparing and sharing vegan meals and groceries with the hungry in nearly 1,000 communities. Along with our healthy organic vegan meals we provide information, music, puppet shows and street theater addressing the many issues we are striving to change. Many people have expressed that our presentation was an inspiration giving them hope. They often tell us that they were moved to participate in their local student organization, local Food Not Bombs group, start a Food Not Lawns garden, reclaims housing with Homes Not Jails or participate in many other exciting projects. You can make a difference by booking the presentation at your school. We are also happy to bring the presentation to your cafe, book store or infoshop at no cost.


Call [masked] or email us at [address removed] today and schedule a 45 minute presentation about the history, principles and current actions of the Food Not Bombs movement. We will also show the 15 minute video about Food Not Bombs in Africa. Keith will also have copies of his new book "HUNGRY FOR PEACE" available at each presentation.

HOW CAN YOU BRING THE TOUR TO YOUR CAMPUS?

As soon as you return to class, ask the leaders of your school's student groups to consider hosting this inspiring presentation on Food Not Bombs. Student groups working for human and animal rights, hunger relief  and the environment can help. Groups like the Progressive Student Alliance, Amnesty International, The National Lawyers Guild, Campus Progress, Student PIRG, SDS, vegan and vegetarian associations, campus groups working to end hunger and poverty and Oxfam have all sponsored The Elect To End Hunger and Poverty Tour. These student groups can secure a venue on campus, ask that the event be announced throughout the college and request funding for an honorarium which will be donated to Food Not Bombs. It is important to request the speaker fee and transportation money as soon as the fall semester starts before the Young Republicans  take all of the student activity funds. We are happy to help you navigate the student government system at your school. Call us today at [masked].



We also provide you with a sample black and white flyer that you can add the date, time and location of the presentation. We will also email you a sample full color flyer, public service announcement for your campus radio station and newspaper. We will also provide you with the forms you will need to request the honorarium and a check list to help you and your friends organize the presentation. We make it easy to attract a big audience and encourage your classmates and community members to join you in organizing for a better future. It is more important than ever to bring the Elect To End Hunger and Poverty Tour to your community!

Food Not Bombs cofounder Keith McHenry's new book will also be out this fall.

Why vegan?

Cruelty: 10 billion land animals raised for food every year in egregious conditions

Environment: animal agriculture contributes more to climate change than transportation

World hunger: 70% of all US grains feed livestock

Health: plant based diets have limitless benefits

Delicious Creativity: Trying new veg foods is an endless adventure - at home or on the town
