Brum FnB serves free food, every other Saturday, in the city centre to anyone who wants it, homeless or otherwise. The all volunteer grassroots collective collects fruit and vegetables from local shops, which would otherwise be thrown out and cooks fresh vegetarian meals to be eaten at the regular public food tables. Fliers publicising the events are distributed at hostels and homeless drop-in centres. The group also provides food at protests and other community events.
Brum FnB plan to continue the fortnightly city centre events throughout 2006. Other plans include liasing with other groups to organise a free monthly community social, strike solidarity servings, investigating self-help practical support with homeless people such as squatting, and being involved in the setting up of an autonomous social centre in Birmingham.
Anyone interested in getting involved and for more info contact email@example.com or 07904 529 362.
