orlando food not bombs is (as far as i know) the longest-running FNB group in Florida. they deserve mad props for longevity. the o-town crew has also been attempting Critical Mass with limited success, but have individually sporting their bike punk skills. The kids are currently hard at work on creating a community center/library/resource center/venue/awesome place in their community, which will serve as a center of operations, host speakers, bands and workshops, and contain an extensive multi-media library of resources for revolution. Several orlando activists are also helping to creat DIY camp #2, August 1-9. For more info on any of these projects or IWW organizing, or anything else contact these kids.

o-town notes: if you find yourself in o-town and are bored or hungry, a new punk record store called counter vulture just opened up downtown and they put on shows and are willing to let the space be used for benefit shows. tony's deli on mills ave. has great falafel and spinach pies, etc.-independent and cheap. Theres also a 7th day adventist hospital (florida hosp. downtown on orange) w/ an all vegetarian cafeteria that is open to about 2am and is filled with super-cheap vegetarian food and great plate-scraping opportunities. All the kids in orlando work at health food stores (whole foods and chamberlains) which both have delis, so you could look into hook-ups or you could look in dumpsters. Also, all einstein bros. bagels got fresh bagels in the dumpster around 6:30pm.

in addition to FNB and CM, clearwater serves as the headquarters for Death Metal Militia disrto and Earth First (contact the trailer). There is talk and action in the direction of a community center (articles of incorporation, non-profit status, possible space, mission statement, benefit shows) and some bike repair (small-scale Bikes not Bombs!), as well as the champion dumpster-diving crew in Florida. There are also Wobbies wandering around, for your labor needs. contact! go! (beware: clearwater, MANOWAR cover band!)

c-town notes: a new skate park opened up in clearwater and they are having punk shows every friday. there is a health food store called Nature's Food Patch you could hit up for grub or...there is a Frito-Lay distibution center with an amazing dumpster chip hook-up. Another favorite treat: at 12:30 7-11 throws away their "fresh baked" pastries and cookies and if you go early...hook up! dont forget dunkin donuts dumpster if you are all about the gross freegan eats.

Naples, FL 34107

sharings: every sunday @ around 1pm. "we are a mobile unit, so no set serving place."

these kids have been sharing food about 40 mins. from naples in Immokalee, FL a central Fl farming community, heavily populated by migrant farm workers who have recently been involved in fighting for more rights and higher wages. it seems like there are a few kids in naples with a ton of energy and some amazing ideas, but they are sorely lacking in people-power, so if you live in the area GET IN TOUCH!

West Palm Beach: most of the fabulous femmes who made up FNB and then some have moved. but you can still reach the radical cheerleaders ad get their handbook at 2630 floral rd. lantana, fl 33462.

g-ville has been consistently very active, with the Civic Media Center, a non-corporate, community-run library, meeting space and resource center, serving as the center of operations for a number of radical projects. THere has been a pirate radio station, Free Radio Gainesville, on and off recently, but they are having trouble with the FCC. (FRG is going back on the air! 1.31.99) Critical Mass draws huge crowds of 50-100 riders to flood the streets with people power and the CMC now is the home of the Free Fridge, a fully functional fridge full of food for fools. The fridge can be accessed whenever CMC is open and it usually contains some grub to whoever can use it. If you are considering moving to g-ville because there is so much going on, I urge you to resist the temptation; stay in your own city and try to make it "the next g-ville". It is possible! stay active and stay home! CMC: 1021 W. University Ave. G-ville, Fl. 32601. phone: 352.373.0010

Radical Cheerleaders: g-ville style. find out what all the hoo-ray is all about. PO Box 2101 G-ville, Fl 32601.

FREE veggie lunch! every weekday @ noon-plaza of the americas-UF campus. bring your own utensils and container!- waste not want not.

G-ville notes: The Hardback, which has been hosting local shows and a once-a-week independent record store just closed down. For records there is still Hyde and Zeke's and i have heard rumors about house shows. Ask around. Food! there is a Mother Earth health food store that is all about the dumpster. Our Place is and independent mostly veg/vegan rest. that is open 24 hours on the weekends and is currently being unionized. Bahn Thai has an awesome, not too expensive lunch buffet. Yum. Pop-A-Top is a gas station with a little sandwich shop hidden inside it. Really greasy, delicious fried tofu wraps, falafel, etc. Leonardo's pizza is usually full of punks, working and eating and you may get a hook-up if u know somebody, but they have really good vegan pizza and usually vegan desserts (fudge) if you dont mind spending the dough.

Sarasota has been rockin' the FNB for about a year one, and the first s-town CM drew almost 50 bike punks to reclaim the streets. S-town kids are actively involved in planning the DIY camp and the Midwest Florida Punk fest/youth lib conference will be happening right here in sunny sarasota. we were recently very close to running our own record store/community center/all-that-other-great-stuff-you-can-do-it-if-you-have-a-space space, but, due to the code complications with backdoors and bathrooms we lost the space. we are currently looking into a new location, so stay tuned. sarasota also hold the title of being the least fashionable but MOST STYLISH florida city. you better work it.

S-town notes: there is a punk record store called Hero's Life which is worth supporting and usually has good stuff. there are a bunch of really good but expensive Thai restaurants and Granary and Mother Earth food stores. the best food in town: Sahara, a small independent middle easter cafe with really good falafel and hummus and 60 cent spinach pies. they even have smoothies! check it out. also, some good bakery dumpsters can be found. for fun: there is a really nice beach in Venice called Caspersen's and its really natural and beautiful and you can camp out there and build fires on the beach. we also climb on roofs pretty often. it is super-fun. yeah. go. uh, go. yeah. GO!
