Grub Community Dinner

Grub Community Dinner
Free beer. Free Vodka. Free everything! Who doesn't love free stuff? Grub is a free and open community dinner held on the first and third Sundays of every month. In a world that throws away over half of the food it produces while tens of thousands do without, events like this are a great reminder that a lot of really great food gets thrown away.

If you're not hip to the whole freegan thing, check out this great Food Rescue Map with great tips on when and where to rescue food in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

From the folks who put on the Grub Community Dinner:

We plan to be able to serve approximately 50 people, so it's first come first serve. There will be plates for vegans and vegetarians alike. About 99 percent of the food we serve is freegan, which means it is excess, ripe, nearly ripe, or slightly damaged food that has been recovered from the waste of grocery stores.
All this wonderfulness happens at 136 Lawrence Street on the second floor, between Fulton and Willoughby in Brooklyn. You can get all the details by clicking here.

  1. Thanks for sharing this information on community dinner party and seems everyone had enjoyed this party. Last month, I arranged a dinner party with my friends at an exemplary Chicago event space. Made wonderful arrangements with help of my family and had an excellent time with everyone.
