YOU DID IT! We reached our goal in no time thanks to your generous donations. The amazing show of support has made us wonder if we should continue our fundraising & expand our project. We thought we’d let YOU decide.
Every additional $200 means another garden bed can be installed in our safe spaces. In turn this means more fresh food at our weekly food shares!
So what’d ya say, wanna go BIG?

Last night hit the halfway mark in our community garden fundraising project. Thank you all for you support & solidarity.
In a world overrun by capitalist ideology and militarized states, human suffering is the law of the land. Nowhere is this suffering easier to see than in the systemic hunger and starvation created by capitalist society. Food Not Bombs Pilsen has worked for two years to provide healthy, delicious, free meals to our community to encourage acts of mutual aid and collective resistance to the wage-labor economy. In order to expand our work, we will be building four new raised garden beds for the upcoming growing season.
Three of the beds will be on ‘safe’ lots, to ensure an abundant harvest and plenty of good food for the community. The fourth bed will involve a reclamation of local land that has been neglected and unused. We will develop a vibrant community garden with the hopes of bringing the community together to provide for themselves collectively, producing food together in our own neighborhood without the oppressions of wage-work, bosses and private property.
