THE SMASHING HUNGER SQUASHING POVERTY TOUR with Food Not Bombs Co-founder Keith McHenry

August 15, 2013

I hope you had a great summer. We sure did. The Food Not Bombs Free Skool really made progress and next summer promises to be even better. This is the 25th anniversary of the first arrest of our volunteers for sharing ideas and food. Since that day on August 15, 1988 the authorities have tried to stop our progress by arresting our activists as they provided food to the hungry.

Each wave of arrests inspired the formation of another wave of Food Not Bombs groups. This summer Food Not Bombs groups have once again been threatened with arrest and over 50 cities in the United States have passed laws banning or restricting our work. August 15, 2013 is also the final day to donate to the Food Not Lawns Solar Pump House so please consider making   a contribution at the website below. Today it is more important than ever to seek change and one of the most effective ways to help is to volunteer. We encourage you to bring Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry to speak with your community. His cooking demonstration is an inspiration and will not only encourage participation in Food Not Bombs but support any effort you may be involved in.  

As you start back to school and the many other fall activities I hope you will consider bringing Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry to your school or community venue. Keith’s presentation is sure to inspire your classmates, friends and family. Visit our website and read all the positive comments students have made about past presentation. You don’t want to miss this opportunity. Speak with club leaders at your campus and ask them to host the Smashing Hunger Squashing Poverty tour. Don’t wait to book Keith as soon as possible before his schedule is filled.

THE SMASHING HUNGER SQUASHING POVERTY TOUR with Food Not Bombs Co-founder Keith McHenry

Food Not Bombs volunteers have been smashing hunger and squashing tofu in protest to the exploitation of capitalism for over three decades. During Keith’s tofu spread demonstration he will talk about the principles, history and Food Not Bombs participation in the global transformation away from corporate domination. Hunger and poverty are intentional features of capitalism and will increase as corporate power increases. Over 25,000 people die every day because of hunger often as tons of food pass them on the way to better prices.

Oxfam and the UN are reporting that hunger will be on the increase this year leading to civil unrest and violent police repression. The capitalist food system is not only causing millions of animals to suffer but is directly responsible for an increase in food insecurity, disease and the climate crisis. Keith’s presentation will inspire you to participate in the transition to a future free from violence and exploitation.

Copies of Keith’s  book “Hungry for Peace” with the tofu spread recipe will be available at the presentation
