    Food Not Bombs is a really stupid name. Is there another group trying to bomb the hungry of Middletown? Does FNB disarm bombs on alternate Sundays?

      Food Not Bombs is an international movement. The idea behind the name is that the government puts an absurd amount of money into military spending while domestic hunger continues to be an enormous problem. FnB combats this by taking food which would have been wasted but is still completely edible and making it available (and delicious!). The action is straightforward, meaningful and representative of this very important idea that we need to take care of each other. The group has met resistance from the government time and time again – the Middletown chapter was actually successful in changing a Connecticut State law concerning the distribution of food.

      Statement from FnB – “Despite our indirect role in its passage, our goal was never the
      statewide legislative reform which ultimately protected our activities
      and those of other grassroots anti-hunger activists from state
      intervention. Rather, our commitment has always been the to the elimination of
      structural inequality of which hunger is but a symptom, the abandonment
      of militarism and to the emergence of voluntary mutual aid as the
      essential characteristic of our social interactions.”
