I found this interesting in the relevance to what’s happening all across America right now. So many people are saying keep the peace while the peace is already gone. They just want silence.

Baltimore Free Farm Feeds Protestors Through ‘Culinary Solidarity’

BALTIMORE – Inside a small, unassuming warehouse in a quiet neighborhood nestled near the outskirts of Baltimore, Maryland, a small group of activists are busy cooking, shuffling about and giving marching orders as veggies simmer on a stove and potatoes bake in an oven. Though they’re used to the hustle and bustle of cooking massive amounts of food, the past two weeks have taken a more urgent tone.

As protests enveloped the city following the death 25-year-old Freddie Gray, whose spine was severed while in police custody, the organization Baltimore Free Farm immediately began working around the clock to feed hungry demonstrators.

Normally, Free Farm – along with other organizations including Food Not Bombs – feeds the homeless organic vegan food weekly. The supply comes from supermarkets and kitchens across the city that deem the food below standards to serve. Free Farm first sifts through the food then proceed to prep and serve hundreds of meals to individuals in need. Read on for how this farm is now feeding protestors here.

People are literally dancing in the streets, coming together over Marilyn Mosby—the prosecutor who just charged six cops with various crimes relating to Freddie Gray’s death—as a symbol of hope. We’ll see what happens next, but right now it’s hard to describe this moment as anything but positive.
