KAN! to launch Cornwall Free Shop (Help Needed)

16 September, 2009

KAN! are organising a regular Freeshop*/Food Not Bombs** style stall for Cornwall.   The aim is to highlight the ridiculous amounts of food waste in this country and to show the benefits and possibilities of mutual aid and community solidarity.

Our next meeting (7pm, 6 October 2009 @ The Front, Custom House Quay, Falmouth) will focus on developing this project and getting on with the practicalities of making it happen.

If you can help out with this, please come along.

Some help we need:  Surplus food from your vege plot, clothes, toys, etc etc that you no longer want/need.  Much more I’m sure.

Please come along….
