Food Coops and Social Justice

First of all, Robert Waldrop has the coolest beard I've ever seen. Let's get my shallow observation out of the way.

Second of all, he did the coolest thing: he founded the Oklahoma Food Cooperative, which brings sustainably harvested, local food to Oklahoma folks. You might be interested in finding a food coop near you.

And third, he has taken a vow of poverty and founded the Oscar Romero Catholic Worker House to study and practice Catholic social justice.

And I am way into Catholic social justice, particularly the liberation theology variety.
