On this edition of Independent Sources, we explore some of the difficulties New York City's Department of Education and its partners face as they try to make public school lunches healthier. We meet Marjorie Bibbons, a woman whose charity work has helped thousands of people and has lead to her getting national recognition. Then we profile Operation Fight Back, a grassroots organization in East Harlem that once battled drug dealers and now provides affordable housing for low-income Harlem residents.
