MARP has partnered with the Community Transformation Grant at Bed-Stuy Restoration
to host a screening of Byron Hurt's Award Winning Documentary Soul Food Junkies
on 2/22/13 6:30 -8:30PM at the Ingersoll Community Center located at 177 Myrtle Ave (Navy/Prince).
Many screenings are being organized throughout Brooklyn on 2/22/13 in order to spark a borough-wide conversation about how we can make environmental and system changes that will improve health outcomes and access to healthy, affordable foods within our communities.
Filmmaker Byron Hurt explores "the health advantages and disadvantages of Soul Food, a quintessential American cuisine. Soul food will also be used as the lens to investigate the dark side of the food industry and the growing food justice movement that has been born in its wake.” To learn more about B. Hurt and the film visit here.
