Here in the east bay, we are keenly aware of the sociological and political challenges associated with our food, especially the lack of access to healthy food sources in low-income communities. In response to these inadequacies, an array of food access initiatives have sprouted in the past few decades, from urban gardens to farmer's markets and local grocery stores, a number of which we have documented in a short film. With this film, we not only hope to highlight major difficulties surrounding food in our community, but also to applaud the efforts of those who have helped alleviate some of these issues in creative and community-building ways.
So without further ado, please join us in watching a clip from "It Takes a Village: East bay communities growing around food."
