Long Island Food Not Bombs Thanksgiving Bonanza
Starting November 21st and going through November 26th Long Island Food Not Bombs will be holding it’s largest endeavor to date; it will include parties, Food Shares, copious amounts of decadent foods, the sharing of clothing, books and the organized efforts of hundreds of community members.
The largest of all these events will be Vegan Thanksgiving. It's a 2 day affair that starts as an all night cooking party, (on Nov.21st, everyone is invited) and culminates into the Vegan Thanksgiving Food Share the next day in Hempstead (“Hempstead Food Share Bonanza”.
The Hempstead Food Share, on November 22nd, will be the largest Food Not Bombs ever! We expect to be able to share a feast with everyone that comes! We'll then be continuing the week with nearly a half a dozen events spread across our Food Shares in Huntington and Farmingville.
This is our most ambitious project to date and to pull it off we are going to need your help, your friends help and even the help of their friends. Solidarity is what makes Long Island Food Not Bombs so strong and we ask that you help us make these events even more absurdly inspirational then we could ever imagine.

Sunday, November 22nd @ 2pm
On Sunday, November 22nd at 2pm Long Island Food Not Bombs will be transforming the weekly Hempstead Food Share into what we’re calling the Hempstead Food Share Bonanza.
In addition to sharing thousands of pounds of Thanksgiving groceries, clothing and books, we’ll also be dishing up a cooked feast made up of dozens of delicious appetizers, entrees, desserts and beverages. It is our hope that this event will be the largest Food Not Bombs Food Share in world history! But to make this happen we need your help.
We encourage everyone to participate by collecting needed items (like clothing, books, toys and other necessities) and sharing them with us on the 22nd. We also encourage everyone to cook up their favorite vegan dishes and bring them down as well.
If possible we ask that you email us (LongIslandFoodNotBombs[at]gmail.com) or call us (631.223.4370) with what you plan to bring, so that we have an idea of how much we have to share. If you’d like to participate in another way, if you have any questions, or if you’d like to share an idea with us please contact us as well.

We welcome everyone to participate in a special Huntington Thanksgiving Food Share – come volunteer and help share with your community. It would be excellent if you could cook up a vegan dish for this Food Share. In Huntington we have a large amount of children (ages 6-12) who help us out. If you have any extra toys, books, clothes or school supplies that you’d like to share they’ll get put to good use.

Thursday, November 26th @ 6:30pm
After a week of crazy events it’s easy to forget that we still have our weekly Food Share at 6:30pm in Farmingville. Because this Food Share is during dinnertime on Thanksgiving many of our regular volunteers will be with their families, and there for, not be able to make it. Because of this we’re asking for your help, with the Share and the litany of pickups we do before hand. If you’re interested in helping out please email us at LongIslandFoodNotBombs[at]gmail.com
