🏴 Protesting food waste & militarism thru direct action & mutual aid 🏴 We host meal shares every Saturday: Franklin Square at 1pm & McPherson Square at 3 ✊🥕 – Food Not Bombs DC is a group that offers food to everyone! We share meals weekly in DC’s parks, where encampments of unhoused people are located. Our work is practical: we believe that food is a human right, and we show this by sharing a meal weekly. Our work is environmental: we only serve vegan and vegetarian meals, with ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away. And our work is political: “Food Not Bombs” means to provide for people first, regardless of identity. The first servings were in direct response to obscene military spending in the face of inhuman levels of poverty. For over forty years, new FNB chapters have opened up worldwide, to offer a vision of mutual aid, rather than top-down control. Members of our collective have collaborated with and cooked with chapters around the world. We don’t only support our community, but we also support FNB chapters around the world-especially those who are organizing under especially repressive governments or who are at greater risk of attack.

It is both painful and inspiring to see members of Food Not Bombs around the world continue to organize as organizers have been assaulted, arrested and murdered. This is a movement to empower the community, and chapters are winning both on the ground and in the courts. If you believe in Food Not Bombs like I do, check in with your local chapter or donate to us on PayPal at “@foodnotbombsdc” . If you want your donation to be quickly directed to international chapters, please write “international” in the note. #foodnotbombs #directaction

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
