Free Vegan Food!
FNB swag available for a small doation!

Rochester Food Not Bombs recovers and shares free vegetarian and vegan meals in our local community. We recognize poverty as a form of violence and believe access to food should be viewed as a right, rather than a privilege: food should be a source of nutrition for people, not profit under capitalism. In this practice we strive to reduce waste by turning donated food into productive meals. We source our ingredients through collaborations with flower city pickers at the public market as well as local restaurants and cafes. We are an all-volunteer run group, with no hierarchy or formal leaders, making decisions based on consensus. Through Community organizing and outreach, we support other local and national peace and justice groups to create a broader sense of social responsibility. If you would like to get involved please contact us!

Community not Capitalism! Solidarity not Charity! FOOD NOT BOMBS!

“By sharing free food without restrictions, we illustrate the fact that there is an abundance of the things we need and that scarcity is a fiction that benefits a small minority”

What is Monday Mayhem?
On the first Monday of every month, the Flying Squirrel hosts special programming that forgoes the technical and logistical concerns of running an open-use community space in order to take a closer look at the impact of our actions on the community and our potential as a catalyst for change.
