Thank you for supporting Lower East Side Food Not Bombs.


Food Not Bombs is an autonomous non-hierarchical volunteer-run organization, with many cells all over the world capable of operating completely independent of central leadership. We are committed to rescuing food that would otherwise go to waste, creating new sustainable food sources, and then distributing said food to hungry people in our communities. Our ultimate goals are to stop the commercialization of food, eliminate hunger, and promote a sustainable survival model for humans that will enable us to co-exist harmoniously with the other species on the planet. In the interest of promoting sustainability, most of the food we serve is vegan, and all of it is vegetarian. Our chapter currently serves every Sunday in Tompkins Square Park from around 4:30 to 6. We're always looking for new volunteers. There are many ways to help. You decide your own level of involvement.
