Food Not Bombs KL: Calling for Donations!
Food not bombs Kuala Lumpur (FNBKL) has been operating in Kuala Lumpur since 2000. Since then, we have been consistenly tabling food to the homefree, street folks as well as whoever who wants it every Sunday evening at Bukit Nanas, Kuala Lumpur.
A little bit on our politics. We believe there is enough food for everyone and there is no need for people to go hungry. People go hungry because the state and corporations are too invested in making money for themselves while they screw over other people. We believe if all those excessive amount of money which the state and corporations spend on arms and war are used instead for housing, health care, food, and all things which are being neglected by them, the world will be a much better place. (pardon my hippiness) Besides that, we also do not condone wastage of food.
We “recycle”, meaning we collect unwanted vegetables which are perfectly edible and whip them up into pretty good stuff and share it with people. We try to reduce consumption as much as we can. And yes, we only serve vegan food as it is both healthy and nonviolent.
Anyways, we are writing this email to request for donations. We are running low a few things and we hope you would be able to donate some of the things which we need and use for our weekly tabling.
rice – we cook at least 2 kg of rice every Sunday
cordial – we make drinks too
sugar – for the drink
oil – to cook the food
spices – to make our dishes delicious =)
Those are mainly the things that we really need. However, we will graciously accept whatever that you would like to donate to us. At the same time, we do not want you to rush out and go on this shopping spree at your nearest supermarket. Support your local grocer instead of some corporate supermarket. And you can also give stuff like canned food or spices which has been sitting in your kitchen cabinet for a long long time. Look in your kitchen first before going out to buy things. Instead of throwing them away, you can just donate it to us.
If you would like to donate any of the mentioned items above or other stuff, please send us an email at email@example.com or please give us a call at 03 7955 0941 or 017 630 6795.
p/s: for the time being we cook at section 8, pj. we start cooking at 1 pm-ish. we later bring the food to bukit nanas at about 5.30. we start tabling the food at 6pm. please join us if you can.
thank you and have a nice day ahead! =)
