This June 16 & 17, 2005, come celebrate the 25th anniversary of Food
Not Bombs with an international FNB Gathering in Philadelphia! As the
Biotech Industry lobby holds its annual international convention in
Philly from June 19-22, the city will be abuzz with a grassroots
convergence for non-GMO foods, biodiversity and global justice.
BioDemocracy/BioDevestation, a counter-conference planned for June
18-21, is being organized nationally by groups including the Institute
for Social Ecology, Northeast Resistance Against Genetic Engineering
(NE RAGE), the Student Environmental Action Coalition, and Reclaim The
Commons. Meanwhile, local Philadelphia groups are facilitating a
Green-and-Black Urban Gathering for anti-oppression and earth
liberation skillshares, an anti-vivisection conference for animal
rights activists, and ... the 25th anniversary celebration of Food Not

Philly's 2 Food Not Bombs chapters have reached affirmative consensus:
We will host this international Gathering! On Thursday and Friday, June
16th and 17th, the FNB Gathering will consist of workshops. Throughout
the entire counter-conference (the 18th through the 21st), we will also
be preparing delicious foods for everyone who comes to BioDev, so
Saturday through Tuesday will probably emphasize cooking, but may also
have skill-shares, discussions, less demanding workshops, etc. So even
if you can’t come before the weekend, you can still be a part of this
FNB Gathering during the BioDev convergence! We are thinking about
limiting the number of workshops on Thursday and Friday to eight, but
are really open to input and whatever ideas and help come along.

Philly Food Not Bombs needs your help & COMMITMENT to make this
Conference happen! We want to know what skillshares you would like to
see, host, have ideas for, etc. We're both fairly new groups and are
open to hearing from more experienced folks. We are looking for help
acquiring massive quantities of food, cooking, fundraising, finding a
lawyer, making/fixing bike carts, transporting food, and obtaining
large-scale cooking equipment for our still-in-the-works kitchen (which
we hope will be up and running by June). We are open to all kinds of
input, so feel free to contact us by posting to the list we created at

P.S. We would really like to get in contact with the Seeds of Peace
and/or Frida buses. If you have their contact info, please forward it
to us. Thanks!

West Philly FNB distributes and shares at 6pm every wednesday at 50th
and Baltimore.

North Philly FNB shares sundays at 5 and mondays at 7, both in front of
the free library between 19th and 20th street on Vine street.
