Grub is a Freegan Meal with Friends!

grub1

Sunday January 17th – Grub: Community Dinner 7pm at Solar Yoga Ashram, 373 9th St. in Park Slope Brooklyn.

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 3:30pm if you would like to help us prepare the meal! All are asked to make a contribution, and part of that, we hope is monetary so that we can support the space.

Last week Edna Lu the teabus (the Free Tea Party) shared free tea and conversation at the free store. They welcomed people into their amazing hand crafted, veggie oil fueled eco-bus it was really exciting to see a nomadic effort to promote the gift economy. The New York Times thought is notable and wrote a story about it, where they even mentioned our own Brooklyn Free Store!
