WHAT’S ON YOUR PLATE?
by Catherine Gund & Tanya Selvaratnam

What’s On Your Plate? is a witty and provocative documentary about kids and food politics.  The film follows two eleven-year old multiracial city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah talk to food activists, farmers and store keepers as they address questions regarding the origin of the food they eat, how it’s cultivated, and how many miles it travels from farm to fork.

The girls visit supermarkets, fast food chains, and school lunchrooms. They also check out innovative sustainable food system practices by going to farms, green markets, and community supported agriculture (CSA) programs. They discover that these are good for the environment, help struggling farmers survive, and provided affordable, healthy, delicious, locally-grown food to communities, especially lower-income urban families. (76 minutes)  Admission FREE!
