Food Not Bombs (FNB)

Food Not Bombs is an international movement to share free, vegetarian food with anyone who wants it and to support actions to end war, poverty, and violence. The USC Chapter of FNB aims to bring together members of the community who share a passion for food, cooking and political involvement.”

USC FNB gets its food donated free from local farmers’ markets. USC FNB cooks every Saturday from 9:00 AM – 12:45 PM at 1293 W 36th St. (2 ½ west of USC) and then takes the food to the Northwest corner of Exposition park, near the intersection of Exposition and Vermont by the playgound, to serve the food and eat.

For questions or further information, send an email to foodnotbombsusc@gmail.com. For info on FNB generally, check out foodnotbombs.net and lafoodnotbombs.org.

Student Activists for a Beloved Community (SABC)

Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

SABC seeks to create a society in which war, poverty, environmental devastation, and hierarchy have no place. This isn’t possible working solely through existing forms of politics and economics but only through giving people the right to make decisions directly about how they live and how they work. This necessitates the removal of political representation and of corporations run by managers, shareholders, and CEOs. We imagine a world that values cooperation above competition, community health above individual wealth, love and peace above conspicuous consumption.

SABC is open to work on any issues, local or distant, that address these problems and visions. In the past, SABC has worked in supporting the union at the USC hospital, worked with other community groups to put on an Earth Day event at a local school to raise awareness of food and the environment, co-hosted a conference at USC that discussed local food laborers and their struggles, presented at the Southwest Labor Studies Association conference at UC Santa Cruz, protested public-housing price increases at City Hall with the LA Community Action Network, organized a USC contingent to march on May 1st, and more.
