Food and Society Video

I tried, unsuccessfully, to get invited to the Kellogg Foundation’s Food & Society conference in downtown San José back in April. Although it looks as though the conference won’t be coming back, through the miracle of Facebook, I’ve found a video made for the conference that features Village Harvest and Full Circle Farm.

It’s pretty disjointed, and I have to say that the narrator’s perky local newscaster voice really annoys me. But I loved hearing the sound of the Village Harvest truck’s lift motor suddenly ring out, as John opened the truck to distribute (perhaps unwelcome) grapefruit toward the end of the VH segment. Then, at the very end of the video, a girl at Full Circle farm said she wanted to be a farmer when she grows up, and that actually brought a tear to my eye.
