Hempstead Thanksgiving Food Share Bonanza 2010
Posted Nov 8 2010 - 4:32pm by LongIslandFNB
Hey everyone, just a reminder that our largest event ever is tomorrow. It will truly be an epic day and we hope you join us in making this event something for the record books. Please stop by tomorrow, bring some friends and have some fun. If you'd still like to volunteer please feel free to sign our volunteer pledge form.
On Sunday, November 21st 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 tens-of-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’s all part of our annual Thanksgiving celebrations. This event, Hempstead Bonanza, will be the largest Food Share in the 30 year history of the international Food Not Bombs movement, it will be the largest vegan Thanksgiving ever and it will be the embodiment of a community that is standing in solidarity against hunger.
Basically, this thing is just going to be huge. Last year, this event was the largest Food Not Bombs Food Share in ever! This year we’re looking to outdo ourselves, big time!
But to make this happen we need your help. Take the pledge to help out and stand in solidarity. We encourage everyone to participate by collecting needed items (like clothing, books, toys and other necessities) and sharing them with us on the 21st. We also encourage everyone to cook up their favorite vegan dishes and bring them down as well.
Please take the pledge to help! 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 Kings, Nassau & Suffolk Counties and we hope you come on the 21st to see what all the hoopla is about.
