Submitted to a campus 

Another faculty member yesterday sent on the announcement list that she and her students had built a website on the politics of food as the culmination of her students' work
...examining how the production, distribution, preparation, consumption, and/or representation of a particular food or consumed item creates reinforces, or challenges structures of power among specific groups of people. ... In an effort to make the information gathered both available and useful to those outside of the class, they have synthesized their research into "fact and action" sheets...
Since the students want you to look and see, please visit the site. And consider the academic value of this activity in providing "information about a variety of ordinary items we consume and the actions that we can all take regarding the politics of food in our everyday lives."

Activism for credit. Publically financed.
