Hempstead Thanksgiving Food Share Bonanza
Posted Nov 11 2009 - 11:52am by LongIslandFNB
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.
If you work at a grocery store, farm stand, restaurant, etc... and you'd like to share food or other items with us we can arrange pickups at your convenience, just call us at 631.223.4370
=>Long Island Food Not Bombs has become an awesome source of community solidarity in Nassau & Suffolk Counties and we hope you come on the 22nd to see what all the hoopla is about.
