Food not bombs

Food Not Bombs Dundee are a nonprofit, grassroots solidarity project run by volunteers in Dundee. Their mission is to not offer charity but rather solidarity to their local community in the capacity of feeding people with a nutritious vegan meal that would otherwise have gone to waste, and offering access to local support networks provided by either the council, NHS or other local groups/charities.

They recognise times are hard for people and that we’re all one tragedy away from being in crisis. Often those that are hit the worst are left to fend from themselves and rely on the ever-shrinking welfare offered by the state. It’s easy to forget that people in hard times are part of our community and it’s just as easy for them to feel like they don’t belong in the wider community. Food not Bombs are trying to reconnect people and fight the stigma around people enduring hard times.

Local people are central to the planning and delivery of all our services. We provide a range of volunteering opportunities, and could not operate without the invaluable support of these volunteers. We work in close partnership with many local organisations to address gaps in health improvement activities.
