outside the McDonald's, St Peters Gate
There was a free food give-away in Nottingham City Centre, outside the McDonald's at St Peters Gate.
Free vegan food samples was given out to passers by, along with information and recipe books compiled by Nottingham Vegan Campaigns.
The 'give-away' included a range of sweet and savoury foods for people to try, made by volunteers from the Veggies / Sumac Centre.

A difference between this a earlier events was the musical presence of Reverend Billy & the Earthaloojah Choir!
Singing a number of gospel chunes including my personal favourite "I'm going to make myself a sandwich" they entertained people while they ate the free-food. Suitably refreshed, we then paraded around St.Peters Square and then straight into McDonald's. Much to the amazement of staff and customers. Splendid:-)

Food not Bombs: Arrests of volunteers sharing meals with the hungry in Florida
20th June 2011, the City of Orlando has made over 20 arrests for sharing meals with the hungry at Lake Eola Park. The city limits the group to sharing twice a year per park. Food Not Bombs has been sharing free vegetarian meals and literature in public for over 30 years. While many believe that hunger and poverty is the result of personal failing and the solution can be found by getting closer to God, Food Not Bombs thought the solution could be found in changing public policy, economics and society.
