A statement from Food Not Bombs Pilsen”
“Today Food Not Bombs Pilsen has taken a small step in our neighborhood to combat the ruthless inequality of capitalist society. Instead of allowing the abandoned police precinct to remain privatized and wasted, we have decided to make a garden to grow food and build community power through autonomous food security. In the garden, we will grow fresh vegetables that we will hand out for free at our weekly food distribution. The garden is just one part of our community garden project that features several raised beds placed through out the Pilsen and Little Village neighborhoods. All these beds are growing vegetables to feed whoever is hungry.”
Food Not Bombs Pilsen is asking for community support. Please consider making a donation that will assist with the acquisition of supplies for building and fielding gardens (i.e. seeds, lumber, soil) grading supplies, and outreach materials such as flyers and pamphlets.
Every Sunday, Food Not Bombs Pilsen serves hot vegan food & distribute groceries at 18th & Blue Island at 1:30pm!
