Occupy Against Big Corporate Food – October 29th

In the context of expanding the movement and its criticisms to address environmental issues and other types of inequity…

Organzations at Yale such the Coalition for Agriculture, Food & the Environment; Environmental Justice @ Yale; and The Yale Sustainable Food Project were recently invited to participate in a protest planned for October 29th against Big Corporate Food, organized by graduate students in the NYU Food Studies program.


I wanted to extend an invitation to your organization for a rally against
corporate food happening in association with Occupy Wall Street. We will be
convening to protest the corporate rule of our national diet on October 29,

This event, created by master’s students in Food Studies at NYU, aims
to bring food to the discussions happening down at Wall Street.

Please join us!


Thank you,
Erika Lade @ NYU
