THIS WEEK’S OUTDOOR SERVICE HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO THURSDAY, MARCH 26, 2020 DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER.
We are very excited to announce that we have finally begun to provide FREE FOOD every single week at the Base. We will endeavor to keep this up in spite of coronavirus concerns, and have switched to a non-contact style of service in order to keep everyone safe. That said, please check here regularly for updates.
Everything vegan, everything free– just show up, grab a bite, check out some books at the Lucy Parsons Library, and learn more about what goes down and what’s coming up at the Base.
Please note that ours is not a gluten-free space and all equipment is shared, so those with severe gluten allergies (i.e. Celiac disease) cannot be accommodated at this time. The same applies to those with severe nut allergies.
Unfortunately, we are taking a break from in-person gatherings indefinitely, as gatherings of ten or more are already prohibited and there are rumors of a potential citywide shutdown in the works.
That said, we will still be serving free food Wednesdays 4:30pm-6pm at the Base, non-contact-style. We started this model last week and plan to continue it for the time being: Instead of serving people inside of the space, some healthy folks with masks and gloves will prepare the food and then leave it packaged on a table outside. Just grab what you need!
If you know anyone who could use some free food, but is not physically able to pick it up at the Base, please email us at [email protected] Depending on their location, we may be able to help.
Finally, we are also planning some very exciting electronic activities in the coming days and weeks, including a reading and discussion group this Friday concerning rent strikes. Please check back here regularly for details on how to participate!
Thanks so much, and stay safe.
Your Friends at the Base
