Food Not Bombs 30TH Anniversary Tour
Lunch and Discussion with Founder Keith McHenry

@ The Buttonwood Tree, 605 Main Street
October 25, Sunday, 1-5 pm, FREE
30th Year Anniversary!! Let's Celebrate!!

We'll be sharing some delicious food (prepared in a licensed kitchen, lol) and having a chat with Keith - join us and learn about this leading edge, grass routes group.

Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry will talk about his thirty years of cooking for peace and working to end hunger, poverty and war. Food Not Bombs shares vegan and vegetarian meals with the hungry in over 1,000 cities around the globe each week. The 45 minute presentation includes the history, principles and current actions of the Food Not Bombs movement around the world, a 15 minute video about Food Not Bombs in Africa, closing with questions from the audience. Keith will also provide literature, books, t-shirts and dvds about Food Not Bombs. Keith has volunteered with Food Not Bombs for nearly 30 years. He spent two years in jail and faced life in prison in California for his work with Food Not Bombs. Amnesty International declared Keith and all Food Not Bombs volunteers "Prisoners of Conscience" if convicted. He has collected, cook and shared vegan meals with Food Not Bombs groups in the Americas, Europe, Africa,Asia, Australia and the Middle East. This is also a great way to get involved with the Food Not Bombs group in your community.
