Food Not Bombs is an all-volunteer movement that recovers food that would otherwise be discarded, and shares free vegan and vegetarian meals. Food Not Bombs chapters help feed the hungry in over 1,000 cities in 65 countries in protest to war, poverty, and destruction of the environment.

We are not a charity but dedicated to taking nonviolent direct action. Our movement has no headquarters or positions of leadership and we use the process of consensus to make decisions.

Food Not Bombs Humboldt Park serves the residents of the Humboldt Park neighborhood on Chicago’s Northwest side with free meals and grocery delivery every Wednesday and Saturday.

Our volunteers collect donated food from supermarkets and farms distribute it to members of our community. We support local peace/social justice actions with food for peace and justice protectors.
