OUR WEEKEND ONLY SCHEDULE
Starting back on March 20 and 21, 2023 Santa Cruz Food Not Bombs returned to its weekend schedule at the Town Clock.
YOU NEVER NEED PERMISSION TO SHARE THE GIFT OF FOOD AND COMPASSION
you never need permission to help the hungry. Sharing food is always an unregulated gift of compassion. This kindness is protected by the US Constitution. There are some things that the government has no say in and the Food Not Bombs protest and meal at the Town Clock is one such assembly.
If they can give you a permit they can take it away. Something we experienced in San Francisco in the 90’s and led to Food Not Bombs’ global policy against accepting or requesting permission. We showed that issue was never about permits it was always about our independence and desire to change society so no one is forced to seek a meal at a soup kitchen or sleep in the streets.
Consider risking arrest if these heartless bureaucrats attempt to drive our message of Food Not Bombs into the shadows of the homeless industrial complex.
FOOD NOT BOMBS WILL NOT BE SILENCED
Everyone is welcome to join us.
We need volunteers every weekend at the Town Clock at Pacific Avenue and Water Streets from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM. Please call us at 831.291.5889 to be placed on the schedule.
