The Banniversary

At the end of October, Food Not Bombs will be leading a "week of action" similiar in style to what took place last year when the sharing ban finally became law.

The Banniversary will celebrate 1 year of continued outdoor food sharings with the needy in resistance to Fort Lauderdale's homeless hate laws. Fort Lauderdale Food Not Bombs will be hosting some kind of activity all week long!

Friday, October 30th, 5 pm: Banniversary Kick-Off at Food Not Bombs
After years of trying, the City finally came close to shutting down outdoor food sharings like Food Not Bombs 1 year ago. Join FNB's weekly vegetarian potluck in Stranahan Park, because it's not going anywhere!

Saturday, October 31st, 3pm: Banniversary Halloween Fun Day 
Banniversary week is not all protests and potlucks...come by for some fun & games in Stranahan Park. Wear a costume!

Sunday, November 1st, 4 pm: Resist Homeless Hate Laws Rally
FNB remembers the 7 weeks of continuous protest and media commotion last year all too well! Let's revisit  the spirt of #resisthomelesshatelaws circa November 2014 with a protest along US 1. 

Monday, November 2nd, 12:30 pm: Banniversary Sharing
Join Chef Arnold & some of the other rebel food sharers of Broward County for a sharing outside Stranahan Park. We'll be marking the occasion of the sharing heard 'round the world, 1 year ago on this day.

Tuesday, November 3rd, 6 pm: Sharing Ban Comedy Roast
"Food Not Bombs invites you to a comedic roast of the infamous sharing ban of Fort Lauderdale during Banniversary week. While several FNB'ers are already scheduled, we invite everyone to sign up and make tributes of their own to the laws that turned Ft Lauderdale into an international laughingstock."

Wednesday, November 4th: Sistrunk Sharing
FNB and other community activists will be doing a sharing at Lincoln Park on Sistrunk Blvd. More information TBA.

Thursday, November 5th TBA

Friday, November 6th, 7 pm: Banniversary Street Prom
The finale for Banniversary week will be a musical street march through downtown Ft Lauderdale following the weekly sharing at Stranahan Park.

"We're not just resisting homeless hate laws - we're sharing our vision of a future liberated from oppression based in gender, race and class, and the contraints of government and society with each other and the people of Fort Lauderdale."
