Local Food Not Bombs Chapter, in New Paltz, is still feeding the local community!
If you are in need of food please call or text the number below for pick up, or local delivery in the New Paltz area.
"FNB mission statement:
“Food Not Bombs recovers and shares free vegan or vegetarian food with the public without restriction in over 1,000 cities around the world to protest war, poverty and the destruction of the environment. Each group is independent and invites everyone to participate in making decisions for their local chapter using the consensus process. Food Not Bombs is dedicated to taking nonviolent direct action to change society so no one is forced to stand in line to eat at a soup kitchen expressing a commitment to the fact that food is a right and not a privilege. With over a billion people going hungry each day how can we spend another dollar on war?”
We always include vegan and gluten free dishes.
We invite any and all members of the community to join us for free food and community.
We are always on the look-out for new food sources. We have been recovering food from event leftovers, garden and farm overflow, food stores that are getting rid of products past their “freshness date”, as well as people moving out of apartments and housing donating superfluous non-perishable food items. We have some members and friends who work food service jobs and donate food from their jobs that would have otherwise been thrown away.
We accept anything that can be stored at room temperature, anything that can stay good in the fridge for longer periods of time such as butter, cheese, or tahini, or any food that can be frozen.
We accept perishable items as long as we receive them by Monday to be served Wednesday.
We accept unopened gallons of milk that are within a day or two of the date as long as it is still good to make paneer cheese.
If you are interested in participating, contributing food or learning more please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
