Why are these two moms so angry?
 
It's lunchtime ... do you know what your kids are eating at school? How
would you feel if you found out it was mostly processed foods, fries,
chips, sodas and pizzas?  


Come see "Two Angry Moms," a documentary tracing the efforts of 
moms around the country working to make sure their kids, and all kids, 
have access to the real, healthy foods they need to grow, learn and 
succeed. PLUS, find out the situation in Oklahoma City schools! 

Sponsored by Transition OKC, EatWise OKC and IAO.

Transition OKC: Helping teens get plants off drugs!

Thanks to supporters like you, Transition OKC raised $2,410 for tools, equipment and compost bins for the Closer to Earth youth community gardens, where teens learn more than organic gardening - they learn teamwork, leadership, mentoring and environmental advocacy. Thank you Oklahoma City!
