How to Start a Food Not Bombs:

Seven Steps to Organizing a Local Food Not Bombs - FNB chapters are autonomous groups with their own agenda and mission. Starting a new group might seem like more than you can handle. One person cannot be a Food Not Bombs group, but one person can start one. This guide will help you to organize your local Food Not Bombs.
Food Not Bombs Operators' Manual - Since East Bay Food Not Bombs came together in 1991, requests for information have come in from people interested in starting a new group somewhere else, or who are interested in learning more about what other Food Not Bombs groups have tried and done. And here is informational and concise manual. East Bay Food Not Bombs Book, c/o Long Haul, 3124 Shattuck, Berkeley, CA 94705, ebfnb@ebfnb.org

FNB Recipes:

Eat The Rich Vegan Cookbook - About a year ago some people in the Minneapolis chapter of Food Not Bombs created a lovely vegan cookbook entitled "Eat The Rich". It is a 54 page cookbook in a halfsheet zine format that contains numerous recipees, vegan factual information, tips on starting your own FNB group, philosophy and history behind FNB, a contact listing of Minneapolis resources, humor and lots of half-naked people. They are $2 by mail and $1.50 (or whatever donation) in person. If interested in a copy please write to us at Food Not Bombs c/o Arise! Bookstore 2441 Lyndale Ave. S. , Minneapolis, MN 55405.

Rochester Food Not Bombs Cookbook - Completed in February 2002, the Rochester Food Not Bombs Cookbook is available for a donation of $10. Much more than a collection of recipes, this is a little handbook for fighting hunger. There are articles and manifestoes, gorgeous art and poetry, and there is humor that isn't afraid of reality (Surplus Cheese Souffle anyone?), email: rochesterfnb@yahoo.com
