Because Food is a Right, Not a Privilege
Meals without a message are just charity and support the system of exploitation. With the global economic, political and environmental crisis growing more urgent it has never been more important to be as effective as possible at inspiring change. The Food Not Bombs meal can be one of the most powerful ways to encourage the public to work for peace, social justice, animal rights and the protection of the environment. We strive to reclaim public space, challenge austerity, and encourage social change.
Food Not Bombs is not a charity. It is organizing to change society and incorporate the principles of Mutual Aid. Ending the system where people are so poor they are required to seek food from charities is central to the goals of Food Not Bombs.
