On the Closing of Monroe Park

Monroe Park, where we serve our meals every Sunday, is still under attack. The park is a major day site for homeless folks and one of few spots for key services like running water and restrooms. A Society Without A Name, for People Without A Home, is rallying to keep Monroe Park open and accessible for everyone.

ASWAN is circulating a petition in support of their efforts as they organize amongst park users and negotiate with the City. Please sign and share!

Celebratory May Day Potluck with Food Not Bombs!

Join Food Not Bombs for a Celebratory May Day Potluck in the Park!

Sunday April 29th at 4pm
In Monroe park, at the corner of Main and Belvidere

Food Not Bombs will be serving a free vegan community meal, like we have done every Sunday at 4pm for the past 18 years. We are inviting the community to come and bring vegan dishes and beverages to share, and turn this day into a potluck event to celebrate worker’s rights.

May Day (May 1st) is International Worker’s Day. There will be many events in Richmond over the weekend leading up to Tuesday May 1st. There will be information on those events available at the potluck.

Possible additional activities in Monroe Park after the potluck TBA!

Rain or shine, the food tastes fine!
