this event will help community kitchen raise money to build two food-carrying bicycle trailers that will enable us to do everything we do by bicycle! …like pickup food donations from produce distros & grocery stores, and transport cooked food & supplies to our servings. that’s not all…the cargo trailers will also magically turn into food-serving tables that we can use when we serve food to the masses! check out these technical sketches from our commie kitsch fabrication engineer:

    * WED :: hot food share, serving 2pm @ the mission in central city.

    * there should be more...
    you could start one!

    WHY?

    because there's too much food being thrown away, & because the right to be free from hunger is a fundamental human right.

    "Solidarity is not a matter of altruism. Solidarity comes from the inability to tolerate the affront to our own integrity of passive or active collaboration in the oppression of others, and from the deep recognition of our most expansive self-interest. From the recognition that, like it or not, our liberation is bound up with that of every other being on the planet, and that politically, spiritually, in our heart of hearts we know anything else is unaffordable."
