Our Raleigh Food Not Bombs (FNB) chapter, is an autonomous collective that provides food, groceries, clothes and toiletries, to wherever it is needed in the community.  We collect donated items from members of the community, local groceries and food outlets. We distribute these donations in three main ways; free package delivery, free cooked meals, and free grocery distribution in downtown Raleigh. We also offer a couple of active projects within the collective such as Clothes Not Bombs and Food Not Lawns. Clothes Not Bombs seeks to provide free clothes, tents and shoes for those experiencing hardship. Food Not Lawns, is a network of gardeners who have volunteered their land to grow food for the community. We make meals and give out fresh produce for free from these gardens. In doing so we provide food as well as educational supportive experiences, surrounding plants and growing your own food.
In a culture devoted to profit, we, without restriction, share food, time and compassion with no expectations. We are not a charity, but mutual aid, striving to stand against the injustices pushed upon our community and we seek to make alliances with organizations who actively uplift the community. We advocate/provide healthy food options, raise awareness/provide educational resources and indiscriminately share support.  We believe that homelessness and food insecurity in general is inherently caused by capitalism, racism, and local gentrification.
Our society wastes so much, food is a right, not a privilege, we have plenty to share.


Transparent and open finances.
