Whether it lasts another month or another year, there’s no doubt that the Occupy Wall Street movement has already created a lasting impression on America.
Joining an OWS demonstration has different effects on people all over the country. Some are arrested, some make new friends. Some are beaten, and some provide medical aid to the victims. Some have their first hot meal in months, and some have the pleasure of growing and preparing that meal.
Despite the sharp sting of violated rights and pepper spray, it is the ideas shared, skills learned, and voices lifted during OWS that will remain in the hearts and minds of all those who joined its ranks.
The video below offers a candid look at what it takes to keep healthy food in the stomachs of Occupy Wall Street protesters, and shares the volunteers’ dreams for growing similar knowledge and food sharing programs all over the world.

The producers believe the world should know the touching stories of many human beings involved in OWS, who are deeply committed to people care, planet care, and fair share. There are only 6 days left to give…no donation is too small!
