Food Not Bombs
Food Not Bombs is a collective of people throughout the city that collect, cook and deliver vegan food to the streets, to protests, fundraisers and events. In Narrm/Birraranga people started organising Food Not Bombs in around 1996 and since then it has grown to 3 servings every week as well as special events catering. The regular weekly servings are held on the streets so that anyone who is hungry, homeless or in need of food can eat without restriction. It is important to FNB that everyone who wants to eat with us can, as well as to ensure there is no hierarchy or division between the people who cook and the people who eat.
