We had a small FNB meeting this month, with Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday represented. Ellen made really wonderful cupcakes and Alex brought delicious soup!


  • Report back from East Bay Food Not Bombs FNB principles meeting. It’s proposed that we should hold a Bay Area wide food not bombs picnic this summer!
  • General banter about servings, what works, what doesn’t, etc
  • Desire to find ways to use excess collected food and better move things around (enthusiastic volunteers welcome to move things)! Folks thought it’d be easier to find people to host servings if we can offer help with food collection.
  • Tree picked up a bike cart from a donor for FNB! It’s now at Station 40.
  • Sit/Lie – cops are out in force, in civic center, bart, 16th and mission. Bothering homeless and poor folks. A serving / protest in the city’s new parklets?   sit/lie action in February. Questions about how they going to enforce sit/lie (enforcement starts tomorrow). Fliers or sidewalk chalking with politician lies? Discuss among groups then bring ideas to the list.
  • We have two or three possible cook houses! To get these servings off the ground we need people who are interested in coordinating / bottom-lining
  • Email list. Who is still in the moderator / admin spot? Something to look into.
  • Let’s make a LED sign! Dana is getting stuff together to do this and we will build it in the next two months. People are excited, time to solder! More screen printing?!?! We can make many designs, patches and shirts, have a combined screen printing LED sign making party — perhaps at Ellens studio.

Meeting Adjourned! 8:51pm
