“Do you know what’s in that bottle of water you’re drinking?” asked Commissioner Rose Tydus. Many were surprised to discover the answer was not what they expected when Commissioner Tydus hosted the Lunch & Learn: Cinema Saturday on April 28, 2012 at 12:00 Noon in the Opa-locka Municipal Complex, 780 Fisherman Street, 2nd floor, as the documentary “TAPPED” examined the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on the health and living conditions of those who drink it.

Astonished at what CAN or already IS happening to their bodies as a result of drinking bottled water, members of the audience were surprised at the information they received on the lack of regulation provided in the bottled water industry and the danger of some of the plastic recyclable containers. In addition to the knowledge gained from the film, a hot lunch was served, games were played including, guess the water source (Bottled, Filtered, Spring or Tap) prizes door prize were awarded and a raffle was held … All FREE to the residents of the City of Opalocka. The Lunch & Learn: Cinema Saturday is held on the last Saturday of every month.

    I am amazed that I cannot find any report of what was actually said at this Lunch & Learn. There is extensive reporting about blindfold games but no content about the actual reason for the event especially as its regarding a very important subject. This is worse than high school newsletter reporting.
