Move Out 2011
The Results are IN!
A Big Thank You to the Students who Donated—The Move Out 2011 events were a Huge Success!
Just one example of the success rate, according to Gina Mathis, Wright State University Custodial Services Manager, was the number of students who donated dozens of boxes of food items for local food pantries. The Wright State Friends Food Pantry is overflowing right now and that is a good thing!
Don’t throw that away! Look for the many ways you can recycle and repurpose the things you aren’t taking with you when you exit campus this June.
Help others and yourself by donating slightly used household goods, clothing and other items as well as non-perishable food.
Look for the two Donation Trucks:
- The Woods: Starting on Monday June 6th until Monday June 13th, a Goodwill truck will be located at the end of Laurel Hall closest to Village Dr.
- College Park: Another truck St. Vincent de Paul Society will be at located in the large parking lot between 2140 and 2170 Zink Road, most central to the community.
Ten Barrels and other WSU containers with “Donate Food Here signs will be placed near Residential Housing to collect non-perishable food items for the WSU Food Pantry.
And always recycle everything that can be recycled—this all adds up to fewer things being hauled to the landfill. Smart and Helpful!

Land & Freedom: Talking Food Systems
Visiting local gardens, farmers markets, and other fresh food projects in San Diego's diverse urban neighborhoods, Land & Freedom speaks with residents that are taking advantage of the city's reformed urban agriculture ordinances. Residents are finding alternatives to a food system that has historically distressed low income communities. Residents are eating healthier with produce they've grown themselves, using community gardens like they would use parks, and displaying respect for the neighborhoods they live in. Still, many people continue to struggle with the lack of affordable fresh produce readily available within neighborhoods and other resources to improve their lives.
Brian Myers, a video producer with the Media Arts Center San Diego, works with under-served communities to document the voice of local community members for the Speak City Heights multimedia collaborative. As a media justice activist he works on a variety of independent media projects for community groups, such as May Day Workers Film Festival, and other organizations focused on social justice.
