Oct 18, 2009: Picnic in Baker Park, Sunday October 18

We had our weekly Food Not Bombs Las Vegas Picnic in the Park at Baker Park today from 10am to 12pm. We had bread, rice, chili, salad, and bananas, with orange juice and fruit punch to drink. It was a beautiful day out and a big meal — about 40 people joined in the meal this week. Food Not Bombs organizers Charles, Daniel, Kelly, Dave, Shine, and Nelson were there. Joe brought out hot food that Gail had made, and Gail joined us later during the meal.

We put some music on the boombox, talked about the city government’s legal maneuvers in cases over their attempts to lock down access to public parks, and talked about the possibility of starting a second weekly picnic. I

. We also had orange juice, fruit punch, lime soda, and homemade grape juice to drink. As a special treat, Chef Mayra brought vegan brownies and vegan carrot cake for dessert.

About 30 people came to join us in the meal. Food Not Bombs organizers Scott, Daniel, Charles, Gail, Kelly, and Chef Mayra were there. We put some music on the boombox and talked about the worsening situation with the city government’s so-called “social services.”

Hope to see you all next week!

Oct 5, 2009: Food Not Bombs Las Vegas meets every Saturday at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf

Hey all,

After a successful series of meetings and some discussion amongst the group, a group of Food Not Bombs Las Vegas organizers — including FNBers Charles, Kelly, Daniel, Shine, Nelson, and Scott — have decided to put on a regular Food Not Bombs Las Vegas organizational meet-up. Currently we are meeting every Saturday at 2:00pm at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in Running Rebel Plaza, at 4550 S. Maryland Pkwy in Las Vegas.

We usually meet up in the back meeting room, with a Food Not Bombs banner at our table to help us find each other. At the meetings we share news about upcoming events and opportunities, do organizing work for upcoming Food Not Bombs events, parcel out new stores that each of us will contact about setting up donations, and report back to the group on how things have been going since the last meeting with the stores we contacted and the other Food Not Bombs projects that we’ve taken on.

If you are interested in getting involved with Food Not Bombs Las Vegas, one of the best ways to start is to start coming to the meetings. Drop in to say “Hi,” meet some fellow FNBers, and we’ll talk about how we can best work together.

  • WHAT: Food Not Bombs Las Vegas organizational meet-up
  • WHEN: Every Saturday, 2:00pm
  • WHERE: Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Running Rebel Plaza, 4550 S. Maryland Pkwy, Las Vegas, NV.
We hope we’ll see you there!
