As a teacher and scholar, I was particularly impressed by the participation of food activists. One of the strategies necessary in any political movement is the development of a broad coalition, so our students were able to see first hand how that worked through the diversity of people in the park and the coming together of a wide range of concerns for a shared agenda. And since one aspect of my teaching and research is on food politics, I was able to connect with new people and reconnect with others I had already met.
