Food Not Bombs: A Conversation with Keith McHenry

Food is strength, and food is peace, and food is freedom, and food is a helping hand to people around the world whose good will and friendship we want.

Food Not Bombs: A Conversation with Keith McHenry

Keith McHenry, co-founder of Food Not Bombs, has a vision: food not bombs changes people, service brings people together, and abundant thinking turns hearts to peace. For the last 35 years, he has worked with others to salvage surplus food, prepare it, and serve it for free in parks, at protests, and during disaster relief efforts. At these meals, volunteers distribute literature, share stories and engage in conversations that encourage people to get involved, connect and become part of an emerging, post-capitalist society. Inspired by his work, others have formed their own "chapters" of Food Not Bombs, which is a loose-knit, all-volunteer group of collectives that serve free vegan and vegetarian meals to the homeless and hungry as a protest to war and poverty. More in this recent interview with Keith about his life and work. { read more }
