Food Not Bombs’ co-founder Keith McHenry will be speaking at York University on Monday, February 14th at 6pm, VARI HALL Rm. 1152A (York University).

Further information is available from FNBTorontoEvents@gmail.com or our Facebook group at Toronto’s Food Not Bombs.

Talk Description: Author, artist and Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry will demonstrate how to prepare solar baked goods and give a presentation about the history, principles and and Food Not Bombs global campaign for the change we knead now! Volunteers recover, prepare and share vegan meals and groceries in nearly 1,000 communities, feeding the hungry, supporting nonviolent direct actions in resistance to the global economic, political and environmental crisis while implementing a foundation for a sustainable future. Tax payers have spent trillions to bail out the banks and fund wars for corporate domination, now it’s time to bail out our communities.

Food Not Bombs started in 1980 when eight college aged activists dressed as generals and started holding bake sales pretending to buy a bomber. Thirty years later Food Not Bombs organized a two month long vigil outside the White House baking bread in a solar oven to build popular support for a conversion from a carbon based war economy to a sustainable solar future. Now you can join this life changing movement!
