FYI, here's an interesting event happening on November 17th at the Los Angeles California Endowment:
Greening the Food Desert: Market Makeovers and Food, Inc. Screening
Tuesday, November 17 at 6 p.m.
In many neighborhoods across the country, access to fresh fruits and vegetables is nearly nonexistent while junk foods abound. This Center Scene Public Program goes behind the scenes of America's food system with a screening of the documentary Food, Inc. and explores how South Los Angeles youth are bringing healthy options to their community.
At this event, you'll also hear how the South L.A. Healthy Eating, Active Communities
initiative and Public Matters
engage young people and you'll learn how to convert corner stores into sources of healthy foods using online toolkit MarketMakeovers.org
. Join us and green your food desert.

The program will begin with a short panel discussion. The film lasts approximately an hour and a half. A networking reception will follow.
