Farmingville, The Reality - Discussion & Thoughts 2009

In the spring of 2009, Food Not Bombs held a meeting in a park with approximately l5 people brainstorming about a third food share on LI and where the best place for it should be. Everyone in the group was well aware of the rampant oppression that exists in Farmingville and with everyone’s overwhelming desire to help out there, it was unanimously voted to begin on Horseblock Road.
