When: Wednesday April 7th
Where: V Ultra Lounge, 44 Wilson Avenue
$5 suggested donation at the door. Doors open at 7pm, film starts at 7:30pm.
After the film, we’ll be joined in our discussion by Patricia Llanos, the Brooklyn Outreach Coordinator for the Healthy Bodegas Initiative (the NYC Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene).
About the Film:
“Where does the food in your bodega come from? Who decides whether to stock tortilla chips or salad greens, and how much they’ll cost? How come it’s easier to find fresh fruits and vegetables in Brooklyn Heights than in the South Bronx? What’s the connection between the incidence of diabetes and the food market supply chain?” Bodega Down Bronx was produced by Jonathan Bogarín, a group of Bronx students, and the Center for Urban Pedagogy. Interviewing residents, bodega owners, distributors, politicians, and health professionals, it’s a fantastic, holistic breakdown of the day-to-day realities that flow from public policy, and what you can do about it.
See you there!
