food not bombs – Keith McHenry too is Hungry for peace

March 23, at noon at the LACC Student Union. Food Not Bombs gives away free, donated food in public. Its local chapters span the globe, providing support after natural disasters as well as meals for the hungry and homeless. McHenry is a well-known activist, and his book Hungry for Peace teaches grass-roots activism.
The lecture will be followed by a reception from 2–4 pm, at the LACC Art Gallery in Da Vinci Hall, where Keith’s watercolors will be included in an exhibit called Art | Food | Activism, with the art collective Fallen Fruit.

     

Artist, activist, and author Keith McHenry
Artist, activist, and author Keith McHenry co-founded Food Not Bombs in Boston with seven friends in 1980. He enjoyed his childhood living at the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Shenandoah and several other National Parks. Keith studied painting at Boston University and started a graphic design company called Brushfire Graphics.

He has recovered, cooked and shared food with the hungry with Food Not Bombs for over 30 years. Keith was arrested “for making a political statement” by sharing vegan meals in San Francisco, spent a total two years in jail and faced 25 years to life in prison. He has written two books including “Hungry for Peace – How you can help end poverty and war with Food Not Bombs.”

Keith lives with his partner and fellow Food Not Bombs activist, Abbi Samuels, in Santa Cruz, California and at their farm in Taos, New Mexico. He enjoys tending to their gardens, sharing meals with the hungry, maintaining one of the movement’s websites and helping coordinate logistics for Food Not Bombs. He is an experienced public speaker giving presentations at colleges and conferences all over the world. Keith also draws, paints, and writes about social justice issues.
