What is a 'socially-just' food? Just a note to all of you "Brooklynites" who live above Eastern Pkwy, there are wonderful people, with long interesting histories and families living in the rest (most) of Brooklyn who are not cultural snobs. When I hear 'sustainable' I tend to agree but 'socially just' with a fist symbol is questionable. Is everything political with them?
