30th ANNIVERSARY FOOD NOT BOMBS CELEBRATIONS
Food Not Bombs first meal shared on March 26, 1981 - Food Not Bombs shares food at its first action protesting the interlocking directors at the Bank of Boston and local nuclear industry by and dressing as hobos and setting up a soup kitchen outside the stock holders meeting at South Station with the message that their policies could cause another Great Depression.
At midnight on March 26th two Food Not Bombs volunteers visited the Pne Street Inn in the South End and inviting the men to join the First National Bank Project protest outside the Federal Reserve Bank. The volunteers were surprised when
over 50 people came to eat. Homeless men from the Pine Street Inn talked with business people and stockholders about the policies of the Bank of Boston while enjoying the vegetarian lunch provided by Food Not Bombs. The action was such an inspiration that the volunteers agreed to quit thier jobs so they could dedicate their time to collecting discarded food and deliver it to people at housing projects, shelters and use what was left over to prepare meals to share with their street theater preformances.
