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.

New Members

The old crew of Davis Food Not Bombs wanted to retire, and with no one at the time to keep it going, they had their last meal/celebration on 07/27/2014. Within a couple weeks, new members took up the torch to keep Davis Food Not Bombs going! It was one of the most awesome things to have happened! The retirees thank everyone who continues the good work of Food Not Bombs in Davis! You rock!


While there are new members volunteering, they need your help to keep Davis Food Not Bombs going! Stop by the park Sunday at 1 or shoot them an email to get involved.

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 19:14:40   by the way my email:!! —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

  • Sorry I missed this one. We, the retirees, really intended to have a meeting, but one member had their work schedule change and the other didn't feel well so when only two people are trying to run things and they are both out then stuff like this can happen. We're very sorry to have wasted your time. At the same time, we're very happy to have passed the torch on to the next generation and you can still help out so please contact current members or go to the park on Sunday to meet them. I'm very proud of the work I've done with Davis Food Not Bombs over the last 7 years and I hope Davis Food Not Bombs continues for many years to come! —RiotInDavis

2014-08-03 16:15:17   Its a shame this is ending. I am likewise interested in keeping this going! —coopistheanswer

2014-08-07 18:12:39   I'm interested in keeping this going too. I noticed there's a meeting today (Aug 7 2014) too late, and won't be able to make it, but would be interested in meeting up soon with other folks who are interested. If you are one of the folks who meet today, could you please post here about how the meeting went? Thank you. —Tranquilator

2014-08-16 11:41:58   Thanks for the interest in volunteering! Davis FNB will be back starting this Sunday. Feel free to email us at if you want to get involved - or just come by the park and chat! —CarlaSaunders
