Bedstuy Food Share

Part of Long Island Food Not Bombs, a Community Solidarity project.

The Community Solidarity Bedford-Stuyvesant Food Share distributes outside of Von King/Tompkins Park (on the northwest corner, at Lafayette and Marcy) every Saturday afternoon at 3pm. Along with free groceries and clothing you can come grab a bowl of Gordon's beloved black eyed peas and lentil soup. In the summer the Bedford-Stuyvesant Food Share almost exclusively distributes farm fresh produce grown locally and donated by CSA's across Brooklyn.

Our Bedford-Stuyvesant Food Share started in 2008 as part of Brooklyn Food Not Bombs and the 123 Community Space. Over time these organizations faded away and Long Island Food Not Bombs, along with Community Solidarity, took over day to day operations.
