Food not Bombs is the most common group/tactic like this in the states. There's probably a chapter near you that would love another volunteer. They also have a short manual on their webpage for starting a new chapter.

In general though, most projects like this are going to be extremely small scale and localized, which isn't a bad thing in itself, but does mean that travelling there to volunteer just for a week probably isn't going to be feasible. The silver lining there though is it's really shockingly easy to do things like this. In my city (in the deep south with basically no anarchist scene or similar) some great activists got a free store started just by going on facebook, asking for donations, and then handing them out in a park where a lot of homeless people hang out. They got a ton of publicity and people gave them food, clothes, toys, hygiene supplies, etc. After a few pop-up shops they started collecting monetary donations to put down a deposit on a retail space and opened a an actual physical "store" which was essentially a thrift shop where everything was free. All it took was two people who put up the facebook page and sorted the donations, then they put out an open call for volunteers and tons of people showed up to help pass things out. Of course, this was helped a lot by the connections they had among local activists, and before you dive into any big project it's good to have the lay of the land wrt to what's already happening in your area.

You can also use the solid fuel that caterers use to keep dishes hot.

If you don't need to throw the device a large spool of magnesium is a great fuck you surprise.

I believe isopropanol is pretty flammable too; can be cheaper than regular alcohol, and burns better.

According to Washington State Legislature section RCW 9A.48.030, arson in the second degree is a class B felony and could face up to 10 years in jail, a fine of $20,000 or both.

“We strongly condemn this act of violence and intimidation. We challenge anyone who disagrees with us to come to hear the presentation on Thursday instead of resorting to cowardly acts of violence,” Hamrick said.

TIL risking 10 years in prison is cowardly

names would be a start, throw out the accusations on twitter, dox the bastard if you can. if the police are covering, enough noise can bring in the feds. this is of course assuming you know more than the nappers occupation.
