Food Not Bombs shares meals in over 1,000 cities world wide every week.
The Long Island Food Not Bombs (L.I. F.N.B.) chapter gets sh*t done. They coordinate three food shares (Hempstead, Huntington and Farmingville) each week; redistribute clothes, toys and books; and many L.I. F.N.B. activists also carve out time in their busy schedules to volunteer with the Food Not Bombs chapters (Bed-Stuy, Bushwick and Manhattan) in New York City.
Naturally, L.I. F.N.B. did not balk at the prospect of redistributing a 2,000 pound donation from Soyatoo. So, if you want to see what 2,000 pounds of vegan whipped cream looks like, get thee to Long Island this weekend for the start of “Long Island Food Not Bombs Thanksgiving Bonanza“!
The “Bonanza” starts Saturday, November 21, at 7:00pm with an all night cooking party to prepare 50 vegan entrees, plus appetizers, soup, bread, salads and desserts, including five different kinds of vegan cheese cake. All of the food prepared will be distributed the following day, Sunday, November 22, at 2:00pm at the Hempstead Food Share Bonanza. Show up to share good vegan food and take home a bag of groceries, including a portion of vegan whipped cream, that would otherwise go to waste if L.I. F.N.B. did not collect it from area grocery stores and redistribute it.
The remaining “Bonanza” events include:
Monday, November 23, at 9:00pm – Dumpster Scavenger Hunt/Olympics
Tuesday, November 24, at 6:30pm – Huntington Thanksgiving Food Share
Thursday, November 26, at 11:00am – Thanksgiving Lunch in Farmingville
Thursday, November 26, at 6:30pm – Farmingville Food Share
