Toy Share Thank You

Long Island Food Not Bombs would like to thank you for your support with our toy share this holiday season. Because of awesome folks like you across Long Island we were able to share toys with hundreds, maybe even thousands, of local families.

In a single word it was simply INCREDIBLE. From Hempstead to Huntington we gave out shinny new racecars, huge Lego sets, board games, dolls, stuffed animals, drawing and painting sets, all weather jackets and other marvelous and wonderful things.

Yesterday, Long Island Food Not Bombs was subjected to more police harassment in the Township of Huntington. Police officers threatened activists and community members with arrest, violence, false accusations of possession of illegal substances and about every law and town code they could think of.

After the two-hour long ordeal, a local activist was issued a summons by Officer Timothy MacDonald for violating Town Code Chapter 149 "peddling" (149-3 A). The hearing is set for October 8th at 9:00am.

Here is an excerpt, "Every Sunday afternoon, Food Not Bombs sets up a small folding table near the parking lot at the Hempstead train station, a site chosen because of the large number of people who walk by. The group brings not only food, but also new shoes, clothing, seedlings and vitamins -- all of it obtained through donations -- to distribute to people who need it."
