Grub - A Community Dinner
Sunday [August 1] ยท
7:00pm - 10:00pm [USUALLY 4pm Cooking then 7pm Dinner but I'd check first if arriving before 7pm - t.]

Grub is a free and open community dinner held on the first and third Sundays of every month.

We are a continuously growing group of people who have worked individually and collectively on projects such as the Really Really Free Markets, the Brooklyn Free Store, The NYC Free Events Calendar and dozens of DIY shows and events. We work with several collectives and art groups, such as ReclaimNYC, Picture The Homeless, Time's Up! and ......Visual Resistance. At Grub we're just offering dinner. Whether you are active in other groups, your neighborhood, your backyard garden, or just new to town, we invite you to our table. To get a little squishy, we are looking for practical ways to build community. We are particularly inspired by the regular dinners served at squats in Amsterdam and Berlin, where you can get a cheap, tasty meal and catch up with friends in a cozy room. We like parties as much as anyone, but we think there should be places to talk without a pounding sound system.

We will only be able to serve approximately 50 people, so it's first come first serve. There will be plates for vegans and vegetarians alike. About 99% of the food we serve is freegan, which means it is excess, ripe, nearly ripe or slightly damaged food that has been recovered from the waste of grocery stores.

Most importantly Grub is about building a stronger and more supportive community, so feel free to come early and hang out. We need help gathering, cooking and preparing food for Grub (culinary skill not necessarily required). Volunteers are welcome to bring vegetarian (freegan and vegan is preferred) food and make their own dishes or help out with the preparation in general. Let us know if you want to be part of it, we'll be starting around 4pm.

And as we're sure you always already do, please go out of your way to talk to strangers and to welcome new people. That's why we're here.

4pm Cooking, 7pm Dinner
