One one side of the Weingart Center in Downtown L.A. is a large edible wall.  It is a stainless steel structure that contains small containers full of edible plants.  Meg Glasser is the West Coast Regional Manager for Urban Farming, a non-profit that seeks to end hunger by planting food.  There are four edible walls in Los Angeles.  The food harvested from the Weingart Center, which services LA's homeless on Skid Row, is used by the chef at the Weingart Cafe, a free food center for residents.
