Signal boost! And in case you’re left scratching your head: poverty is a form of violence for many reasons, most of which being that it is cyclical, preventable, and very difficult to escape unassisted. The idea that poor people are “lazy” is false; it’s oversimplifying for the comfort of people who can’t face the idea that they are complicit in such and overwhelming problem.
We have a Food not Bombs in Eugene! It’s operated out of my co-op kitchen actually, we get donations of organic veggies that are about to go bad and make delish food from it. I made some dank guac yesterday and folks loved it… we need more help through. There aren’t enough folks and people always get tired and usually leave our kitchen a mess and mess is contagious and then I have to deal with it. So come help us, we’re friendly ;)
