Aug 30, 2009: Sunday picnic in the park 30 August 2009

Food Not Bombs Las Vegas shared food at our weekly Picnic in the Park at Baker Park from 10am to 12pm. We had rice, chili, vegetable soup, pesto pasta, and salad to eat, with juice and water to drink, and a special dessert of vegan brownies prepared by Chef Mayra.

About 30 people came to join us in the meal. Food Not Bombs organizers Charles, Daniel, Kelly, Ray, and new FNB organizer Scott were there to set out the food and drinks. Joe brought hot food that Gail had prepared. And in a special treat, professional vegan chef Chef Mayra came out to offer artichoke and red pepper pasta with pesto sauce and vegan brownies. Mayra, who we are pleased to welcome as a new supporter of Food Not Bombs Las Vegas, plans on coming out to the park every other week. We put on a line-up of music on the boombox, talked about cooking and about plans for the upcoming fall, and a couple folks tossed a football around.

Hope to see you all at the park next week!
