WHY IS IT
IMPORTANT TO REQUEST A SPEAKERS FEE? Keith donates most of the speakers
fee or honorarium to Food Not Bombs. A small percentage also helps pay for his
transportation to your school. Food Not Bombs would not be able to do nearly as much to change society if it were not for the funds we raise through the speakers fee.
All students contribute to a student
activity fee which is used to bring speakers, bands and other club
activities to your school. The student government may have tens of
thousands of dollars, even millions to distribute to student clubs. Groups like the Young Republicans can spend tens of thousands of dollars to bring in speakers.
It is important that progressive student groups divert some of the Student Activity Fees to programs seeking to end exploitation.
Some of the clubs that have sponsored the Food Not Bombs
presentation include SDS, vegan and vegetarian clubs, campus coops and
cafes, animal rights organizations, environmental and green clubs, Oxfam
and Amnesty International, PIRG, campus peace groups and clubs
addressing the issues of hunger, poverty and homelessness.
The speakers fees have made it possible to buy vehicles and cooking equipment for Food Not Bombs groups in
Africa, provide funding for Food Not Bombs world and regional
gatherings, relief efforts and projects at the Food Not Bombs Free
Skool. The speaker's fee also pays for the essential expenses of the global coordination office and the hunger
hotline. Schools have provided from $2,000 to $5,000 for
