The Food Not Bombs movement started in the late 1970s in America.

The food produced is vegan or vegetarian, mainly due to health and practical reasons.

It has grown to more than 400 branches worldwide.

The movement was started by anti-nuclear activists.

Co-ordinator Martin Bowman estimates that they collect six crates of fruit and vegetables, two sacks of bread, 40 sandwiches and 20 cakes each week.

He estimates that they have served around 4,000 meals since they were formed in January 2010.
