’Food Is A Right’, FNB Budapest Weekend Action, 17 – 18 November
From the organizers: The actions are solidarity demonstrations to raise awareness of housing poverty, homelessness and mass food waste: people to know that a lot of things are working in a wrong way within this social/economic system and we face these problems day by day when we step out on the streets: we see poverty, starvation, homelessness and the growth of housing difficulties.

FNB Budapest is not only trying to reflect on these problems but standing in solidarity with all the poorest and unbacked human beings as well, because they believe that the right to food and housing are basic human rights.

Programme for the weekend


Start: 2:00 PM
Central Market Hall: Budapest, Vámház krt. 1-3., 9. district
Fehérvári street Market Hall: Budapest, Kőrösy József u. 7-9., 11. district

We want to save as much food as possible from rotting, so we're going to the markets. If you have some stronger bags, please bring them to the market action for carrying the vegetables and fruits!
We ask you follow the event because market coordinators will indicate here that who you can look for if you have any other questions or if you don't know where the team is etc.

How can you help at the action?
- Collecting veggies and fruits
- Separating and washing commodities

We cook several vegetarian/vegan meals from the collected veggies & fruits for people in need and homeless people.

- Sorting the plastic dishes

Start: 4:00 PM
Venue: Boráros square, Blaha Lujza square

Around 3:00 pm we discuss and decide the tasks and roles out at the food sharing, so even if you would like to join only for that part of the action, please come to the Auróra (Auróra street 11.) at least until 3:00 pm.
