This is a updated video short with a commentary by Paul Engler, founder of Center for the Working Poor. We dubbed his radio interview with 89.3 KPCC FM into the footage that Faith/Activism Collective took at our recent dumpster dive. Check it out. Faith/Activism kicked in up a notch (one-two, one-two) with the start of a series of “dumpster dives” we seek to engage college students on our levels of food consumption, the excess of landfill waste, and awareness of disadvantaged communities lack of access to healthy foods. Through Dumpster Diving we hope to encourage further commitment to food distribution to working poor families in South LA. In partnernship with the Center of the Working Poor (, we want college students to participate in Friday collection and distribution of fresh produce from LA’s Produce Warehouse in Downtown. The Center specifically meets the needs of families whose parent has been fired from a service-sector job in the LAX Hotel Corridor for organizing other employees into a union.
Video Rating: 5 / 5
