Food Not Bombs has been giving out free groceries every Tuesday for months at Park 35 Apartments. Last week police ordered us to stop distributing food to people there, or face arrest. We plan to continue, and we need your support out there or we may be shut down for good!

The tenants love and depend on the free grocery program, but the property manager is trying to ban it because she thinks people getting free fresh produce “looks bad”. We have tried several times to negotiate and address any concerns, but she won’t budge. She specifically complained that we were giving out literature which told tenants how to exercise their rights against unfair evictions, poor housing conditions, etc.

We are tired of management disrespecting tenants, neglecting repairs, and doing unfair evictions. And now they want to stop residents from getting free food!

Please come this week out to stand up for tenant’s rights and the right to food – this program may not be able to continue without your support.

Location: Near entrance – past gate. In case of rain: under mailbox gazebo
