Food Not Bombs (FNB) Oxford recently celebrated its first meal, in support of the Free University event.

Article taken from Issue 1 of The Ox-Fly - Oxford's radical newsletter:

After a successful night recycling – collecting £200 worth of sandwiches and rucksacks full of vegetables, (and - bizarrely - toffee apples), we had a fun morning cooking up a feast. The menu included hot pasta, vegetables, garlic bread, fruit salad, pains chocolat, and a huge selection of sandwiches and soups.

Passers-by and participants dug in happily to a spread of tasty, recycled and absolutely free food, while chatting about the event and the issues it raised.

As an act of resistance to war, capitalism and poverty, FNB recover food thrown out by supermarkets, cook hot vegan meals and share them on the streets and at protests, pickets and occupations. We are not a charity, but a leaderless group of people dedicated to social change.

FNB Oxford is still at an early stage and anyone is welcome to get involved! Join us to recycle, peel, chop, socialize, share ideas and EAT!
