Today, food-justice group Food Not Bombs celebrates 30 years of serving veg food to those in need. The group was founded on May 14, 1980, by eight activists who were protesting a nuclear power station in New Hampshire. Together, they created a volunteer-based, non-profit organization dedicated to collecting plant-based foods and preparing meals to feed the hungry. Today, Food Not Bombs serves more than 1,000 communities worldwide, and each group works autonomously to aid its respective fellow citizens. Food Not Bombs also have a history of participating in protests, ranging from immigrant-rights actions to animal-welfare campaigns.
