Occupy Big Food on BBC Worldwide

Illustration by Brian Lawless*

After our amazing and inspiring rally yesterday, the BBC called and asked me to come on the program Up All Night to talk about my article on the Huffington Post, “Congress Declares Pizza A Vegetable?” and Occupy Big Food. The program’s host, Dotun, is really funny — especially when he says, “Kristin, let’s be honest, Americans don’t know what a vegetable is.” Please take a listen!

Thank you to all who came out and supported the movement yesterday! This is only the very beginning of a growing and deeply needed movement. We are already planning our second rally which will feature some exciting performers. We look forward to building and growing this movement with all of you.

Our First Rally

Those who braved the elements to Occupy Big Food

We held our first rally October 29 at the Big Red Cube across from Zuccotti Park to Occupy Big Food. Despite the wind, rain, snow, and thunder about 30 people came out to show support.

This was just the first in series of events that we will organize, stay tuned for updates!
