Donate Money

Food Not Bombs is an all-volunteer operation.  We are believers in “do it yourself”, and we go to trouble to keep our costs as close to $0 as possible.  Nevertheless, there are some things we need money for, and we are always coming up short on funds.  Anything you can contribute will help us do more, and every dollar goes directly towards sharing resources with those who need them.

Donate Food

We accept all kinds of food donations. Have surplus food from a farm, grocery store, restaurant, special event, or anywhere else?  Let us know.  We prefer vegetarian food, but no matter what you have available, we’ll find a way to make use of it!

Here are some staples we especially need:

  • Sugar
  • Coffee creamer
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil & other oils
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Beans (canned or dry)
  • Canned vegetables
  • Packaged / preservable snacks
