As we near the 8-year anniversary of our founding this June, Long Island Food Not Bombs is now sharing hundreds of thousands of pounds of groceries each month! We're also sharing other necessities like clothing, hot vegan meals, school supplies, toys and toiletries to folks in need here in our own community. Want to help us make things even better?

The Whole Foods supermarket in Jericho didn't have electricity Tuesday, but it still had one customer: Long Island Food Not Bombs, a food-recovery group that takes unsaleable but still edible food from supermarkets and distributes it to food pantries and the hungry.

Last week Long Island Food Not Bombs meet to discuss the future of our efforts and an enormous consensus was reached. In order to keep growing we need to create a sister organization, a nonprofit.
We urgently need your support; we need it right now! Please read on and please consider making a monetary donation this week! You can do so by calling 631.223.4370, dropping off monetary donations at any of our food shares or by contacting any of the volunteers listed at the bottom of this email.

The Hempstead Thanksgiving Food Share Bonanza was indeed the largest of all time - both in the scale of people and the sheer volume of what was shared. Within half an hour 10,000’s of pounds of fresh foods made their way into the grocery bags of hundreds of people.

Check out this awesome article by Newsday about the Long Island Food Not Bombs Hempstead Food Share. 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."
