Food not Bombs on Christmas Day – 9am

Written by on Sunday, December 22, 2019

On Christmas Day, this Wednesday December 25th at 9am, Peace & Justice will feature an interview with the founder of Food Not Bombs, Keith McHenry.

Artist, activist, and author Keith McHenry co-founded Food Not Bombs in Boston with seven friends in 1980. He enjoyed his childhood living at the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Shenandoah and several other National Parks. Keith studied painting at Boston University and started a graphic design company called Brushfire Graphics. 

He has recovered, cooked and shared food with the hungry with Food Not Bombs for over 37 years. Keith was arrested “for making a political statement” by sharing vegan meals in San Francisco, spent a total two years in jail and faced 25 years to life in prison. He has written three books including “Hungry for Peace – How you can help end poverty and war with Food Not Bombs.” and “The Anarchist Cookbook.”
