The People’s Potato is a vegan soup kitchen at Concordia University - a student initiated project that was founded in 1999 in order to address student poverty and the lack of affordable food options on campus. Serving more than 500 meals daily to students and community members, they are committed to education around food politics and anti-oppression, and to the broader goals of social and environmental justice.
I was a member of the board of directors from 2010 to 2013.

Food Not Bombs is a loose-knit group of independent collectives, sharing free vegan and vegetarian food with others. Food Not Bombs' ideology is that myriad corporate and government priorities are skewed to allow hunger to persist in the midst of abundance. To demonstrate this and to reduce costs, a large amount of the food served by the group is surplus food from grocery stores, bakeries and markets that would otherwise go to waste, or occasionally has already been thrown away.

Rote Flora is a non-commerical autonomous cultural centre hosting exhibitions and cultural events as well as acting as a local meeting place for radical politics.
Stockholm Straight Edge is a DIY collective that organizes all ages and drug free shows in Stockholm.
