Survival In West Oakland

In West Oakland, California, people are dealing with food insecurity issues because of a corrupt food system, the same food system that is contributing to global climate change. People in West Oakland face challenges because of their food disenfranchisement, but they are also finding creative solutions.

Featuring Mandela food Co-operative, Planting Justice, the OFPC, and appearances by Michael Margolin’s elementary school class, a part of the Oakland Based Urban Gardens project. Credit also goes to Jake Schoneker and Paul Zink for help with filming and editing.
