Students & Healthy Schools Event, Feb. 23rd

4 to 6 pm

Historic Takoma

Film and discussion by the Young Activist Club

Students from several Takoma Park public schools have banded together to address the problems with disposable styrofoam foodservice ware. They’ve raised more than $10,000 to pilot a dishwasher at one school and are asking businesses to go styrofoam-free.

This event is part of a series of films and discussion on “Farms, Food and Public Policy,” sponsored by the Takoma Park Food Co-Op.
