i've gotten great recs for restaurants to visit this weekend when i'm in town from boston, and now i'm looking to see if i can find out more about food issues in Philadelphia. i work for a non-profit that teaches cooking classes to inner-city youth, and we're really interested to learn about how other cities approach food justice and food access issues. i haven't been able to find out much on my own, so i thought i'd ask hounders. anything from urban gardening collectives, government initiatives, or cooking classes like ours, i'd really appreciate learning about. thanks!
