Long Island Food Not Bombs will hold a massive Food Share Bonanza in Hempstead
Who: LI Food Not Bombs’ hundreds of community volunteers collect, prepare anddistribute tens-of-thousands of pounds of food, clothing, books and other goods toupwards of 2,500 people in the community.
What: Serving 200 plus hot vegan meals and desserts, giving out over 47,000 pounds of groceries, 5,000 pounds of clothing, books and more.
When: Sunday, November 18th at 2pm
Where: In the parking lot adjacent to the Hempstead Long Island Railroad station
Why: Because food is a human right and if the resources used to fund war andoccupation were diverted toward feeding people, poverty could be eradicated.
Thanksgiving need not include the standard turkey. Vegan (animal product-free) mealscater to people of all dietary persuasions, promote compassion, create a far smaller
environmental footprint, and use far less resources than meals including meat and dairy.
Plus, in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, tens of thousands more Long Islanders are indire need of assistance this Holiday Season.
