On Saturday, March 14th, two SF park rangers forced the Bayview RRFM to leave India Basin park and issued warning citations. Officers cited the lack of a permit in their action and made vague, unsubstantiated claims that the RRFM did not clean up materials at previous events. Here is a copy of the citations, showing that the rangers cited the RRFM for “vending merchandise” and “camping.”

This is the latest chapter in the city of San Francisco’s crackdown on DIY and free events. We stand in solidarity with the RRFM and encourage everyone to attend upcoming RRFM events as a show of support, including March 28th in Dolores Park and April 11th in Bayview. For more info, check out

Friday @ 12 noon. Bring instruments like drums and guitar and also
cameras of all sorts! Thanks for your support in the past and we hope
to see you in the streets!
Peace, love, Unity,

Middletown, CT

I was involved with FNB in Middletown, CT for four years and graduated from
Wesleyan Univ. last May. I’m still often seen as the “contact person” for the
group by the City of Middletown and many others, although there are 85 people
on our listserv, and I’ve been contacted by the City of Middletown with a
legal order. It threatens “police action” if we do not cease “dispensing” food.

Orlando, FL

The City of Orlando has appealed the federal judge’s ruling (Sept. 26) in the lawsuit we filed against the City over its “large groups feeding” ordinance. The judge found that in seeking to ban groups such as OFNB and others from sharing food with hungry and homeless individuals in downtown parks that the City had overstepped its bounds, violating constitutional protections of freedom of speech and

We will be serving at the bay area anarchist book fair, March 14th and 15th, in Golden Gate Park! If you are interested in helping with these special servings, please email sffnbvolunteers [at] riseup [dot] net.

If you’re visiting from out of town and would like to join SF FNB other times this week, feel free to meet us at the serving location + jump in or email folks listed on the Servings page.


We’ll have several items available for donations, to help us build more bike carts & purchase cooking oil (one of the few things we can’t get for free).  SF FNB t-shirts we’re asking $12-$15, patches & stickers $0.50-$1. ALL money after the cost of supplies goes to FNB. Get them at the fair or email sffnbvolunteers at riseup dot net and we can arrange something!
