WE STILL NEED MORE KITCHENS AND VEHICLES IN THE NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY AREA. Please call 1-800-884-1136The disasters we are facing are unprecedented. Sandy is causing huge problems. We have several hundred Food Not Bombs groups in and near the area hit by Sandy. Your local Food Not Bombs group may already be providing food and logistical support and can use your help. Food Not Bombs has often been the first to provide aid after earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, heat waves, riots, forest fires, terrorist attacks, droughts, economic crisis and other disasters. Our volunteers were first to provide food after the 1989 San Francisco Earthquake, Hurricane Katrina, the attacks on the World Trade Center and the 2008 economic collapse. We are also often the last to end our relief efforts. The American Red Cross asked those seeking relief after the 1989 San Francisco Earthquake and Katrina to call our toll free number 1-800-84-1136 for food and logistical support. We have made a point to have this number staffed in person which is important in the event of a crisis since people may not be able to have access to electricity and need immediate support. The need for emergency disaster relief is increasing with more extreme weather devastates communities and the economic crisis grows more dire. As a result your support is needed more then ever. We not only need financial support but we need volunteers to help collect food. We also need vehicles, tools, cooking equipment, communications equipment and medical professionals.
