A Tale of Two Businessmen

In this week's broadcast, NOW investigates the work of two very different projects. Both were started by businessmen. And both are battling community problems. In the case of inner-city Boston, the problem is high unemployment. So Glenn Lloyd opened City Fresh Foods to give good jobs to residents in the neighborhood and good meals to children and senior citizens. In Montana, the problem Tom Siebel takes on is meth addiction among teens. He started the Montana Meth Project to run an edgy ad campaign that tries to prevent meth use by giving kids the unvarnished—and often quite grisly—truth about the drug. Learn more about City Fresh here and Montana Meth here. Video will be posted online a few days after the show airs.
