Food Not Bombs is a youth oriented group that believes society and 
government should value human life over material wealth. Many problems in 
the world stem from this crisis in values. By giving surplus food that would 
otherwise go to waste to hungry people in public places, Food Not Bombs 
directly addresses the level of hunger in this country. We also call 
attention to our society's failure to support its own, while the government 
and private sector both spend vast sums on instruments of war and violence. 
We are committed to the use of non-violent means to change society. By 
working today to create organizations that prefigure the society we 
envision, we are building a vital and caring movement for progressive social 

Food Not Bombs - Hoboken is in need of a stable location to carry out its 
activities. This includes meetings/food preparation on Friday nights and 
reheating/cleaning on Saturday mornings. The group currently meets in the 
back room of a pizzeria. The space is no longer large enough to contain our 
meetings and often closes before we have completed our planning and 
discussion. Each Saturday morning Food Not Bombs uses the kitchen of a local 
college dormitory to cook food we have collected from donors. This kitchen 
does not provide us with the necessary space for our cooking needs and is 
not available as frequently as we need it to be.

Food Not Bombs is reaching out to ask your organization to consider lending 
us use of your place of assembly. We require a space for meetings/food 
preparation on Friday evenings from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. and use of the 
kitchen for reheating/cleaning from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 on Saturday 
mornings. We are willing to discuss with you the specifics of allowing us to 
use your space and attempt to reach an arrangement that is amenable to all. 
Thank you for your time and consideration and we look forward to hearing 
from you.
