Jul 3, 2010: Food Not Bombs Las Vegas @ First Friday in downtown Las Vegas, July 2, 2010

Las Vegas Food Not Bombers Sarita, Charles and Brian had a great time tabling for FNBLV at this month’s First Friday in the downtown Arts District on July 2 from 7-11:30pm. We set up an outreach table with banana bread, pastries, fresh fruit, lemonade and iced coffee; we also had handbills to get the word out about our weekly picnics, literature, Food Not Bombs bumperstickers and buttons. Charles did the baking and FNBer Kelly contributed literature and merch.

We got a great response from folks passing by the booth, whether just because they were looking for a bite to eat, or because they knew Food Not Bombs and wanted to know how to get involved here in Vegas. We had a lot of good conversations with friends old and new, and are looking forward to doing more tabling events at First Friday and other public gatherings in the future.

See you at the park this weekend — and at the next First Friday in August!

Apr 5, 2010: FNBLV @ First Friday in downtown Las Vegas, April 2, 2010

Food Not Bombs Las Vegas participated in Aprils First Friday event in Downtown’s Arts District on April 2 from 6:30pm to 10:00pm. We had banana bread, brownies and fruit. Charles brought fruit, Gail supplied banana bread and Michelle brought banana bread and brownies. Michelle and Brian worked the booth.

Though, off to a rough start, having to relocate multiple times, we seemed to have had a great response from people at the booth, many of whom were familiar with FnB, but unaware of a local chapter. Others were interested in the effort, and curious about participation. Overall we felt the booth was a successful form of networking, and hope that FnB will be able to participate in future First Friday events.

Aug 9, 2009: Sunday picnic in the park 9 August 2009

Food Not Bombs Las Vegas shared food at our weekly Picnic in the Park at Baker Park from 10:00am to 12:00pm. We had chili, rice, vegetable soup, salad, and banana bread to eat, with lemonade, soda, juice, and water to drink. We had a boombox with music and a few of us tossed a football around.

About 30 people came to join us in the meal. Food Not Bombs organizers Charles, Daniel, and Kelly were there to set out the food; Gail sent hot food and her famous salad but was unable to come out to the park herself; and we welcomed back FNBer J.T., who has been traveling.

Hope to see you all at the park next week!
