Hold on to your hats. The FNB 30th Anniversary Festival is only a week
away. We are busy planning all sorts of fun stuff. We will be celebrating
30 years of Food Not Bombs, which started here in the Boston area in 1980,
with the theme being connecting food security issues with poverty issues
in Boston.

Food Not Bombs
30th Anniversary Festival
Sunday, May 23rd
12noon - 5:00PM
Boston Common at the bandstand

We have a lineup of amazing workshops including Capitalism and Your
Health, Sprouted Foods, Tenants Rights, Fermentation, Composting, Urban
Gardening, how to start a FNB chapter.  The homeless community is also
getting space to meet and discuss in a "fishbowl" style meeting the issues
that face them everyday. This will be followed by a homeless speak out on
the Common.

We have a sick music line-up with groups like Sway, Brief Awakening, Laura
Jorgenson, Evan Greer, Tem Blessed, Mallory, Jake and the Infernal
Machine, Natural Bliss, Majesty, Humanwine, and more. Also, coming all the
way down from East Hardwick, Vermont, we are having Modern Times Theatre
do some puppetry about food issues.

BAAM is doing a really really free market, so bring some stuff to trade or
just take some free stuff with you. They will be joined by several other
organizations from the city with interactive tables and ongoing
mini-workshops all day.

And yes, kids are welcome.! We are having kids' games and art projects
throughout the day, as well as some art documenting the history of FNB.

And finally, there will be a huge picnic. So bring a blanket, bring some
food, and who knows-- perhaps FNB will make an appearance and bring some
of their own fine cooking to share.

So please come to the Food Not Bombs 30th anniversary celebration. It's
free and it starts at Noon on the Boston Common, Sunday May 23rd.

Hope to see you there!
