Thu Dec 26 2013Hundreds Served at Santa Cruz Food Not Bombs Holiday Meal
Thu Dec 26 2013Food Not Bombs Co-Founder Helps Organize Santa Cruz Christmas Meal
On December 25, Christmas Day, Santa Cruz Food Not Bombs served a free vegan holiday meal to hundreds of community members outside of the downtown post office. Food Not Bombs co-founder Keith McHenry helped organize the meal, and he has reported that many of FNB groups across the country would be sharing vegan meals during the holidays this year in response to an increased need due to new cuts in food stamps and an extreme reduction of access to food during the holiday season.
The temperature was in the 70s, people played music, activists tabled, and the mood was celebratory. Santa Cruz volunteer Jeane was presented with the Five Carrot award for being one of the people dedicated to making sure the Saturday meal at the post office happens every week. The post office has been the regular location for Santa Cruz Food Not Bombs weekly servings for over a year now on Saturdays, and McHenry announced that they could be expanding to serve free meals on Sunday as well.
McHenry encouraged everyone to eat more and take food with them because they cooked for a thousand people.
