    Asheville Food Not Bombs

    Can You Volunteer Your Time?

    Asheville Food Not Bombs is putting out a call for some help the next four Saturdays. They do such an outstanding job of feeding anyone who wants it at Pritchard Park with donated food from the (always happy to help) French Broad Food Co-op and bread from the City Bakery.

    from the email:

    This project was restarted by a group of primarily Warren Wilson College students but has since expanded to include a variety of cookers, servers, cleaners...

    Overall, Food Not Bombs in Asheville has become a multi-generational, family-oriented, activist gathering of sorts where people from many different socio-economic backgrounds blend with others who they might not interact with on a day-to-day basis.

    We especially need people to do the pick-up, cooking, serving, and cleaning for the following days:
    -June 23rd
    -June 30th
    -July 7th
    -July 14th

    I am trying to put together a rough outline of folks who can commit to a task before I head out so that this project does not fall down while some of us are gone. If you are interested in helping out, please contact me at 303-929-9713 or jamim@riseup.net and I will give you more
    information!

    Hey I know this is old but I was trying to figure out how to get involved with AVL's food not bombs. I was involved in another city with this program. Thanks!

    Wish I could help you out.

    Last year I heard they were having trouble getting food donations and would probably disband. Some people at Warren Wilson college had initially put the group together but beyond that I'm pretty clueless. Keep checking Google from time to time for any updates. Take care~
