President Obama spent last week convincing other countries to send troops to Afghanistan. Sunday some people in our area held a peaceful protest against war.

The Food Not Bombs program gathers unused food from local farmers, supermarkets and restaurants to make food for the community. The group holds the event the first Sunday of every month. Food is free for anyone that attends.

Organizers said the program has simple, but lofty goals. “To eliminate hunger and protest war and poverty because it’s ridiculous to be spending money on war when there are people here starving,” said organizer Selena Shissler.

Food Not Bombs is a global program that started in Boston in the ’80s. Shissler organizes the program at the Community Action Center on Castle Street.
