Long Island Food Not Bombs now has a third and new chapter based out of Farmingville which will conduct Food Shares every Thursday @ 6:30pm at the intersection of Horseblock Rd. and Granny Rd. The Farmingville Food Share begins this Thursday (June 25th) so we invite you to come over and check it out. You can find more information by going to www.LIFNB.com.

What's been going on?

Over the past three years Long Island Food Not Bombs has grown from a handful of friends sharing bread to communities of hundreds who've created entire radical supermarkets. Currently, we're the second largest food distribution organization on Long Island and we do everything without spending a dime. At both our Hempstead and Huntington chapters we share thousands of pounds of fresh organic vegetarian food, clothing, books and other necessities with hundreds of our fellow community members each week. On top of that, most everyone leaves with a week's worth of groceries.

This is something that we're looking to bring to Farmingville and we'd love for you to come down this Thursday to help make that happen.

Why Farmingville?

The immigrant population of Farmingville, and most of eastern Long Island, has been the target of violence by hate groups and police oppression for years. In Farmingville alone, there have been a series of racially driven attacks, murders, fire bombings, abductions and harassments.

Only a few months ago, Ecuadorian immigrant Marcelo Lucero was lynched and killed by a group of seven young white men who were out looking to find some "Mexicans to fuck up". Murders like these are the result of hate mongering groups that infest Long Island and remain unchecked.

One goal of our new Farmingville Chapter is stand in solidarity with the community and assist in overcoming some of the systemic racism that infests our towns.

The Future of Long Island Food Not Bombs...

The Farmingville Chapter is our latest push out into Eastern Long Island and we hope that it can become a bridge to more Eastern Long Island Food Not Bombs chapters in the future. Currently Long Island Food Not Bombs holds Food Shares on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursday. We intend to expand this in the future; we want to see Food Shares every day of the week. But we can only do this with your help.

The new Farmingville Chapter is going to be a lot of work and we need your help, and your friends' help. So please, on Thursday come on down and bring some friends. Together we can grow our community.

Love & Liberation,
JonSTeps & Long Island Food Not Bombs
