Food Not Bombs Columbus Park
Sat, January 29 at 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Food Not Bombs is an anarchist organization that serves vegan food to the food insecure around the world. Columbus Park is an encampment in San Jose where hundreds of unhoused folks live. These folks don’t have water or electrical hook-ups. Healthy home-cooked food is very much appreciated.
Each Saturday at 2PM comrades bring vegan food, drinks and humanitarian supplies to share with the Columbus Park community. Join us! All are welcome!
Humanitarian supplies include warm clothing, bedding, toilet paper, hygiene kits, dental hygiene items, wet wipes (bad for the environment, but people love them), feminine hygiene kits, pet supplies (lots of awesome dogs, like Ninja, live at the encampment), etc.
Humanitarian Aid is limited only by our imaginations. Food Not Bombs Columbus Park built a hand washing station for the encampment. An ally who lives at Columbus Park tends to the hand-washing station, keeping it full of water, and we bring supplies to keep it stocked up (soap, liquid soap & paper towels).
A Peace Pantry and Tiny Library would also be great additions to Columbus Park and other encampments. 🙂
