VROOM is a former school bus retrofitted to veggie-oil and is now available to groups and organizations for their journeys in pursuit of radical change. The bus is based in Wassaic, NY and serves the five boroughs, the Hudson Valley and Harlem Valley. By making the vehicle available to other members of the activist community, we hope to assist organizations devoted to radical organizing and social change with specific transportation needs.

The Freedom Food Alliance is a collective of small rural and urban farmers, activists, artists, community members and political prisoners who use food as an organizing tool to address food sovereignty, environmental justice, prisoner justice and economic justice. We believe it is important to bridge the gap between urban and rural because through strong regional unity we can create sustainable alternatives and tackle the injustices in our communities. We believe food sovereignty is the best way for us to truly transform the inequalities that we see in our communities and gain control over our food. For more info contact: [email protected]
