Food Not Bombs 2 weeks ago

1st food not bombs went pretty well. There was a lot of help through out the day. We got a lot of great food and delicious peaches. They were so sweet and ripe. Jack Moffitt took some nice pictures of the food before it was prepared.

Last week there was the New York Trip, and it was raining, so stuff couldn't really get going.

I unfortunately can't keep up with doing Food Not Bombs Servings on Fridays, I have a friday class, and I personally will admit that I bit off more than I can chew this semester.

SO there will be a food not bombs meeting Wednesday the 15th in the Student Lounge @ 8pm, For anyone interested in trying to keep the ball going with this Chapter. I will be able to help out with collecting food still of people are interested. This is a really great cause and I hope others can give what they can to make it work. If not next year there will be a CS200 class for people who want to do community service and make art work based off of it, and get CREDIT. Which is cool.

There is no Food Not Bombs this week because Coastal Grocers Has no food for us htis week. Which is a first. They are the biggest contributors each week.

So if anyone read this thank you for your interest.

Last Thursday and Firday

Thursday we collected from "What's Brewing" and "Coastal Grocers". The Daily Bagel wasn't able to give us anything. But we were able to collect 1 loaf of bread 5 bags of potatoes, a bunch of lemons and some overly ripe pears.

We were not able to serve this Friday because it rained all day. But me and Erik Donated all that food to the Shelter in Salem.

Friday, april 2nd 2010

We had the most food for this chapter ever last Friday, we Made rice, beans and vegetables, loafs of bread, tons of canned foods, we made Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, we also served at the first Baptist Church. A very successful day, maybe 6 people showed up to help, but we had to have served close to or more than 50 people, with plenty of food left over. Afterward we made a large donation of cooked and non-perishable food to the river house. Good day.

March 27th, 2010

Today we had our first food not bombs serving day. It went really well, we had a total of 8 people helping, and we served about 20 people, including ourselves. The woman who runs the Farmers market came by and I gave her a packet of our information.

But we served breads, bagels, rolls, pastries, stir fry, asparagus, rice and beans, Hot black Tea, chips, and muffins. It was a successful day, we got some video footage and pictures. We are debating what day to have it on, and where we should cook the food in the future. Randi and Leah have a little band together and they might play at the servings days when it is warm to draw people in, and have nice music to listen too.

I hope for this to keep going.
