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.
Current members have decided they are retiring. Here's your chance to take up the torch and keep Davis Food Not Bombs going!
Current members of Davis Food Not Bombs have decided to retire. The last meal/celebration they are having is on 07/27/2014. Thanks to all the members over the years and all the people we've met and have been a part of our lives. We appreciate everyone! Thank you!
Those who are interested in keeping Davis Food Not Bombs in operation are welcome to take up the torch. Food Not Bombs is about making things happen and that means you can make it happen! You can do it!

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
I encourage people to bring food in a potluck fashion, but there is NO "Farmer's Market" (sic-plural possessive is correct) on Sundays in Davis. Go to Central Park, near where the Saturday and Wednesday Markets are held. —DougWalter
2008-07-11 19:40:27 i just discovered FNB, and they are awesome, I can't wait to participate! —briangoldner
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
2014-07-29 11:43:39 Hi folks, sorry to hear you are retiring! Would it be possible to get in touch with one of the recently-retired members to learn more about continuing this chapter? I came to the New Volunteer meeting at Mishka's last Thursday, but I didn't see anyone from Food Not Bombs there. I stuck around from 7 to 7:30 and then gave up and went home... —economista
