Bed Stuy Patch- A Movement for Healthier Lifestyles: Brooklyn Discusses Soul Food

Thursday, February 21, 2013
In Brooklyn, the movement for healthier communities started with a few grassroots organizations, and here at Restoration it started with the Partnership for a Healthier Brooklyn. To continue building the mass movement for healthy living, during the month of February and specifically on February 22nd, Restoration, in collaboration with over 30 Brooklyn member organizations of the Partnership for a Healthier Brooklyn, will screen the award winning documentary, ‘Soul Food Junkies’ by Byron Hurt.

The documentary was first screened at Restoration in mid-November, and was unforgettable as it was successful because it traced the history and love for soul food. It sparked an interesting discussion among community members, some aware of the obesity issues engulfing communities of color and some struggling with them.
