Jun 21, 2012: Food Not Bombs LV Weekly Picnic and Food Sharing – 6/24/12

Every Sunday from 10:30 am to around noon (there’s no designated end time), Food Not Bombs Las Vegas holds a weekly picnic to share food with hungry people at Baker Park, which is located at 1100 East Saint Louis Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89104, which is just northwest of Maryland Pkwy/Sahara. (see below for map)

These picnics are an event not just a handout or charity action. Members interact with and befriend local people who may be experiencing difficulty making ends meet and are in need of a supplement to their available food resources. We serve them healthy nutritious vegetarian or vegan meals as a way of building community and ensuring those who might be experiencing financial difficulties that they are still valued members of our society.

In addition, anyone wanting to get involved with Food Not Bombs within the Las Vegas area is encouraged to come and talk to current members and explore ways that they can become a part of this organization and/or suggest new ways that we can be a part of the local community.

Food Not Bombs Las Vegas is a local autonomous branch of an international movement that for decades has supported sharing, respect, peace, cooperation, dignity, a nurturing of the environment and most of all optimism at a time when many are in despair. We also encourage a “Do It Yourself” feeling of empowerment and a rejection of the need to solve problems through violence including the violence of war, violence of poverty and violence against animals and the earth.

We strive to show that it is not necessary to waste so much of the food that we work so hard to grow by organizing a voluntary system of food recovery and redistribution. No one should need to go hungry when we have so much abundance. Food Not Bombs is not a charity. This energetic all volunteer grassroots movement is active throughout the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Australia.

For over 30 years the movement has worked to end hunger and has supported actions to stop the globalization of the economy, restrictions to the movements of people, end exploitation and the destruction of the earth and its beings. It is a matter of ending the domination of corporate power and providing access to, and encouraging participation in, the making of decisions that affect our life and future.
