Cutting the Curd gets political with Heather Squire, the coordinator for Occupy Wall Street's (#OWS ) food preparation and delivery. From washing dishes to feeding over 3000 people in a single weekend Heather explains how her and the food team in Zucotti Park have devised a large-scale food distribution system: The Peoples Kitchen. Delving into another facet of the food justice movement in tandem with Occupy Wall Street is dairy farmer and activist Lorraine Lewandrowsky and fromager Tia Keenan. The group discusses cheese economics and the plight for more transparency which comes from more small dairies and less industrial farming and processing. Learn how you can help this movement, from volunteering to sending food supplies or attending the Occupy Big Food movement. This episode is sponsored in solidarity by Cain Vineyard & Winery
