Jul 6, 2010: Wednesday Picnics in Paradise (Park)!

We’re happy to announce that Food Not Bombs Las Vegas has opened up a second weekly Free Picnic in the Park! In addition to our ongoing Sunday picnics at Baker Park, FNBers, activists, community members, and anyone who’s hungry will now be joining together for a free vegan meal and community picnic, every Wednesday from 4-6pm, at Paradise Park (4775 McLeod Dr, in between Harmon & Tropicana. Paradise Park is a great space, with a comfortable, laid-back atmosphere, some beautiful trees, lots of shade, playground equipment for kids, and a lot of picnic tables.

And you’re invited! Come on down and join us for community, conversation, and a delicious vegan meal. Please feel free to drop in whenever you can — it’s a picnic, and many folks who can’t make it at 4 might be able to make it at 5 or 5:30.

If you’re interested in volunteering to help bring food or drinks to the picnic, or in helping to prep and cook food with other FNBers, contact Charles (by e-mail, or by voice or text at 734-262-2129).

Nov 20, 2009: FNBLV Organizational Meet-Up this Saturday at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf

Just a quick reminder: Food Not Bombs Las Vegas will be meeting up for our weekly organizational meet-up at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf this Saturday, November 21, at our regular meeting time of 2:00pm.

We usually meet up in the back meeting room, with Food Not Bombs literature set out 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.

This Saturday, we’ll be talking about our outreach events coming up next week, discussing possible outreach tabling opportunities at music shows and other community events, and working on ongoing plans to open up our second weekly free picnic, planned to take place on Wednesdays at Alexander Villas Park in Las Vegas.
