My friends! It is nearing that time of year when Food Not Bombs begins to prepare for the Chez Gay Cafe. This is our third year of serving at the Trans March and we want to do something a little different. We are encouraging everyone to bring something for a picnic/potluck style meal. Please bring vegan or veggie stuff to share. We may have even have a grill for veggie burgers. All friendly people are welcome.
Save the date: Trans March, June 25th, Dolores Park, 3pm ish. By the Palm Grove

Keith McHenry, one of the original founders of Food Not Bombs (FNB) returned to SF on April 25th as part of a nation-wide tour to promote the 30th anniversary of Food Not Bombs. Today, people will be celebrating this occasion at Soupstock in Boston, MA.
Kieth McHenry shared many thoughts, ideas, and experiences at the meeting and also showed a video of his work in Nigeria. It was very revitalizing to see how FNB has spread to so many nooks and crannies across the globe.
Some things we talked about that SF FNB could use work on were the following:
- Developing flyers
- Having a literature table (to point people to other local happenings)
- Spreading solidarity among other organizations & groups
- Manage the phone and email
These things were discussed in connection with attracting new volunteers to help support SF FNB. One useful tip he mentioned for literature and flyers was to tie rubber bands around them (to keep them from blowing away).
People are already working on these projects but if you or anyone you know would be interested in helping out, please give us a holler on our email list.
