In the Inbox today, from our friends at the Center for Urban Pedagogy:

“In the Bronx, bodegas are a way of life. But who chooses what the bodegas sell? And where do all those chips come from?

This semester, students from New Settlement’s Bronx Helpers and CUP teaching artist Jonathan Bogarín have been investigating bodegas in the Bronx. The group interviewed bodegueros, visited their suppliers, and met with congressional representatives, health professionals, and alternative Bronx food establishments. They’ve made a documentary to pass along what they’ve learned.

Join us at The Point for the world premiere screening of Bodega Down Bronx. Bronx food distribution luminaries and delights fresh from the bodega shelves will be on hand.”
