Sunday April 19th – Grub: Community Dinner 7pm 21 Clinton Ave 2nd floor, by the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Watch First the Dishes Then the Revolution by Jeff Stark and get an idea about what Grub is.

We plan to be able to provide food for approximately 50 people, and we have to close the space at 10pm so don’t be too late! There will be plates for vegans and vegetarians alike. About 99% of the food we share is freegan, which means it is excess, ripe, nearly ripe or slightly damaged food that has been donated or recovered from the waste of grocery stores.

Most important of all – Grub is about building a stronger and more supportive community, so feel free to come early, get to know new friends and contribute. We need help gathering, cooking and preparing food for Grub (culinary skill not necessarily required). Volunteers are welcome to bring vegetarian (freegan and vegan is preferred) food and make their own dishes or help out with the preparation in general.

And as we’re sure you always already do, please go out of your way to talk to strangers and to welcome new people. That’s why we do Grub!

Come as early as 4pm if you would like to help us prepare the meal! All are asked to make a contribution.
