Don't live in cully? Seven tips on how to start your own fnb: http://www.foodnotbombs.net/seven.html food not what??? Americans discard over 40 percent of the food that is produced. 1,400 calories worth of food is discarded per person each day, which adds up to 150 trillion calories a year. The United Nations reported in 2010 that all one billion people that go hungry could be fed by the food that is wasted every day. The mission of Food Not Bombs is to recover and share free vegan or vegetarian food with the public without restriction to protest war, poverty and the destruction of the environment. Our group is non-hierarchical and consensus based. We recover food that would have been discarded and share it as a way of protesting war and poverty. With fifty cents of every U.S. federal tax dollar going to the military and forty percent of our food being discarded while so many people were struggling to feed their families that we could inspire the public to press for military spending to be redirected to human needs. We also reduce food waste and meet the direct need our our community by collecting discarded food, preparing vegan or vegetarian meals that we share. Food Not Bombs also provides food to protesters, striking workers and organize food relief after natural and political crisis. Food Not Bombs is dedicated to taking nonviolent direct action to change society expressing a commitment to the fact that food is a right and not a privilege. Solidarity not charity!
