Feeding Ideas: A Look Inside The Zuccotti Park Kitchen

Feeding Ideas: A Look Inside The Zuccotti Park Kitchen

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.

If you enjoyed this film, please consider donating to the IndieGoGo campaign to create more. 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!

What does it say about our economy and our system of business that OWS is even necessary? Kudos to those brave souls who stand up for themselves and the rest of us.

I guess some of the Occupied Cities are still actively operating. Recently, I have only been hearing about the movements being evicted from certain city areas. It would be nice to know how many are still active in which cities and how many have been evicted from which cities and whether or not the evicted cities joined other movements in other cities. Until today, I was wondering if the flame was going out on the movement. I would like this movement to grow into triggering some much needed change in our federal government. And, preferably soon before I land in the streets begging for bread!!!

It's all about having a heart and wanting what's fair and just. This is something that the Tea Partier's have never displayed, as they've always been so opposed to fairness and big corporations being responsible for their greed, crime, unfair/immoral lobbying activity, blatant corruption, paying zero taxes, etc...

OWS has truly been a people's movement, coming totally from the beautiful hearts of the people who truly care about the common people, and America as a country. And, OWS has had the courage to stand up, in the face of abuse, arrests, pepper spray, beatings, etc., to spread the word that people are aware of the corruption in our country, and it needs to stop!
