Meaningful Movies follow up.
A very informative series of shorts about urban food in 3 cities across America. The connection between food and social justice became very clear. There were also informative displays about Seattle Tilth, Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS), and Puget Ridge Edible Park (PREP)
Next month the movie is a very in depth documentary about money in politics.
