Join us for dinner Sunday night!

Grub - A Community DinnerGrub - A Community Dinner

Join us for Grub: a free and open community dinner held on the first and third Sundays of every month.

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 recovered from the waste of grocery stores.

Most importantly Grub is about building a stronger and more supportive community, so feel free to come early and hang out. 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. We plan to be able to serve approximately 50 people, so it’s first come first serve.

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’re here.

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

Please come as early as 3:30pm if you would like to help us prepare the meal!
All are asked to make a contribution.

Grub is at 136 Lawrence St. between Fulton and Willoughby , Brooklyn, NY (map)

Also we are looking for other larger locations where we can host Grub. If you can help us with that please get in touch -inourhearts@gmail.com.
Thanks!
