Cleveland Food Not Bombs


I just received the following announcement:

Sunday, August 1st, Clefnb is planning on celebrating the life of Cleveland poet/activist Daniel Thompson. Daniel was a mentor of Cleveland Foodnotbombs and one who tirelessly worked for issues we find near and dear. This is also an event to focus and look back on Clefnb and our 15 years of community participation. The event will be held in the Public Square NW quadrant adjacent to Daniel's way from 5-7pm.

Music/poetry/puppetry will be on the lawn and food will be served nearby at the corner entrance at West 3rd and Superior where Clefnb has been serving for the past four months. Please Join Us. You can bring a prepared dish if you wish or just give us a hand.

Preparation of the meal will begin at 1pm at the Cleveland Food Coop and we will gladly accept any volunteer help offered. Or Contact Clefnb [at] gmail [dot] com if you need more info about participating.
