Sunday July 20th – 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.
Grub is a freegan meal that aims to bring people together and build community interested in sharing and addressing the issue of waste. All participants are expected to contribute, so feel free to come early, help out, and get to know people. We need help gathering, cooking and preparing food for Grub (culinary skills are appreciated but 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. Please go out of your way to talk to strangers and to welcome new people. That’s why we’re here.We plan to have enough food to share with approximately 40 people. This is a first come first serve event so please be on time, but there is always something for everyone even those who arrive late. There will be plates for vegans and vegetarians alike. About 99 percent 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 importantly Grub is about building and nurturing stronger and more supportive communities.
Please come as early as 3:30pm if you would like to help us prepare the meal! All are asked to make a contribution.
