Jun 28, 2011: Action to Support Food Not Bombs Orlando at City Hall, July 1, 2011

On Friday, Food Not Bombs Las Vegas will meet outside City Hall to protest the arrest of Food Not Bombs members in Orlando, FL for giving food to the homeless without a permit. We’ll have signs and flyers asking people to let the Orlando mayor’s office know how they feel about it. Tell everyone you know about it so we can have a big turnout!

RSVP here.

If you can’t make it, please take time to contact Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. Let him know what you think about Orlando’s ordinance regarding feeding the homeless

If you decide to contact Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer or anyone else regarding Food Not Bombs Orlando, remember: BE NICE. No swearing, threats or all caps. Going crazy or making threats is the fastest way for you to be dismissed as a kook (and possibly get charged with making terroristic threats on a government official… or worse).

Jun 28, 2011: Picnic in Baker Park, June 26, 2011

Food Not Bombs Las Vegas held our weekly Free Picnic in the Park at Baker Park on June 26 from 10:00am to 12:00pm. Gail brought rice, soup and beans, Chuck spaghetti and salad, Herb watermelon, Thomas fish, and Sean peanut butter sandwiches and water. Her and Lorne also brought books and clothes.

About 20 people joined in the meal this week. Food Not Bombs organizers Gail, Chuck, Herb, Thomas, Her, Lorne, Mary Jory and and Sean were there. It was hot, which meant we had to refill the smaller water jugs a few times. Water’s going to become more and more important as the summer goes on.

See you at the park next week!
