Chew on This: Community service on the street level

Oct 2, 2012
Ella Baker Center

Many of us wonder what we can do for the communities we live in. Sometimes we feel alienated, even from our neighbors, and just want to connect. Other times, we come together for the sake of safety. We join a neighborhood watch, or pay a visit to city hall. In this next story, we meet three residents of West Oakland who are finding new ways to clean up their communities -- literally. Reporter Charlie Mintz has the story from “Chew on This,” a new project coming to KALW this fall.

Do you ever wonder how to make great ideas a reality, right where you live or work?  

That’s the goal of Chew on This – a new program being launched by KALW and hosted by independent producer Lisa Rothman.
