Demand for the free weekly provided by Food Not Bombs has increased throughout the past year’s lockdowns, reaching an all-time high in August and September. Elizabeth Mitton dives into the local chapter of this international movement that has provided a free meal in Nogo-Ptbo every week since 2005. In the face of a global health crisis, which has exacerbated an already tenuous and unjust food system, community members come together every week at Food Not Bombs to share in resistance. As member Myles Connor articulates this organization “is an opportunity for praxis...not an opportunity to give back, but to take action.”
