FNB Web Collective
February 4th, 1996 (in Davis)

Food Not Bombs (FNB) Davis has been serving free, delicious vegetarian meals to the Davis community since 1996. They serve year-round (except for rare occasions beyond the control of the volunteers). FNB Davis hates waste. By reclaiming food that would otherwise be discarded and feeding people, we make a statement. FNB Davis (and those that eat our food!) is grateful to those who donate our source ingredients (Davis Food Co-op, Delta of Venus, Village Bakery, and others) and those who provide our kitchen facilities.


The Thursday July 24th meeting had to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. We are truly sorry if you tried to attend that meeting.
New Volunteer Meetings: Thursday August 7 at 7pm. Meeting at Mishka's Cafe

If you wish to volunteer, you should first come and eat with us a couple of times. That way you can meet the other volunteers and decide if you're still interested. We cook in a single medium-size kitchen, so if ten people show up to cook it kind of overwhelms us. Other ways to volunteer, which we always appreciate is by bringing food to the serving location to share. And also, we can always use help with cleaning. It is a huge help.

Hey Davis, we know a lot of people are moving in the summer either around town or out of town. During this time a lot of food is thrown away. Instead of throwing away perfectly good food, donate it to Food Not Bombs! We take canned food, packaged food, spices, sauces, pasta, rice, juice, water, soda, candy, cookies, so on and so on as well as toothpaste, soap, etc. Please keep non-dry goods unopened unless it is fresh fruit/veg. of course. Keep your stuff out of the landfill and help the community out. Please drop off your donations at Central Park on Sundays at around 1pm at the big oak tree. Thank you for your help!

We do not have freezer facilities so if you have frozen food, consider cooking it and bringing it to the park on Sunday.

Update: 07/23/2014

Davis Food Not Bombs is in urgent need of dedicated volunteers who have their Sundays free. Those who are interested in keeping Davis Food Not Bombs in operation should attend the new volunteer meeting (see announcement in the volunteering section above). Longtime members are planning on retiring and replacement volunteers are needed.

Current schedule of Sundays Davis Food Not Bombs is serving:

Note about missing some weekends:
Due to main members being either unavailable, sick, or hurt, the Davis Food Not Bombs has been out of commission for multiple weekends. We are striving to use the schedule above. Thanks for everyone's support.

I cannot praise Food Not Bombs and those that make it happen, enough. They are a model for how all service organizations should function. I consider them the most truly spiritual folks anywhere. For a small number of us, this one weekly nourishing meal makes a big difference in our lives. Oh, and the food! Delish! -A satisfied customer

2007-02-11 16:53:35   This is a great organization. If you have any food you want to share, bring it by Farmer's Market on Sundays around 12:30pm and join them! The more food the merrier. Don't waste! —KiwiSelina

2009-09-16 19:13:21   Is this group not active any longer? I tried to email because I am interested in volunteering & the message "permanently failed." Can someone contact me if it is active still...thanks!! —chrstnhwrd

2009-09-16 19:41:57   I suspect what happened was one or a few people had access to the hotmail account and it was neglected. I would just show up to get more info about meeting to help. —NickSchmalenberger

2010-02-17 03:26:10   During a bit of time homeless, I had occasion to dine with them, and greatly appreciated the occasion. The fare was simple, consisting of seasonal vegetables, served with the best possible seasoning: seconds. Truly wonderful people, deserving of infinite praise. —Flynn
