Donating to Food Not Bombs

Donated items should be shelf-stable, unopened (except for spices, which can be opened but must be in the original container), and vegan. We can also use produce: for example, if you have excess from a garden. Please only drop off produce between Friday and Sunday. Items can be dropped off at Food not Bombs which is on the side of the building through the gate of RVA Createspace, at 607 Wickham St. Richmond VA 23222.

If you would like to organize a food drive, contact rvafoodnotbombs@gmail.com, to work out details.

Donating Items to Food Not Bombs

Donated items should be shelf-stable, unopened (except for spices, which can be opened but must be in the original container), and vegan. We can also use produce- for example, if you have excess from a garden- but please only drop off produce on Saturday or Sunday. Items can be dropped off on the porch of the Wingnut Anarchist Collective, at 2005 Barton Avenue, Richmond Virginia. If you would like to organize a can drive, contact rvafoodnotbombs@gmail.com, to work out details. 

Vegan means no animal products, meaning no meat, fish, meat broths or stock, lard, dairy, gelatin, or eggs. Honey is ok.

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!
