[ARCHIVED] “WHAT’S ON YOUR PLATE”

“WHAT’S ON YOUR PLATE”
A film by Catherine Gund with Sadie Hope-Gund and Safiyah Riddle
Sat Mar 19 3pm FREE
Co-sponsored by the Apex Farmer’s Market
What’s on your plate? This movie will have your whole family asking that question in an innovative and educational way. This witty and provocative documentary about kids and food politics takes place over the course of one year and follows two eleven-year old African-American city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah talk to food activists, farmers, and storekeepers, 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. They visit supermarkets, fast food chains, and school lunchrooms.
But 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 options have a number of positive effects: they are good for the environment, help struggling farmers survive, and provide affordable, locally grown food to communities, especially lower-income urban families. The film culminates with a delicious local meal cooked by the girls and friends they have made along the way. Sadie and Safiyah formulate sophisticated and compassionate opinions about urban sustainability, and by doing so inspire hope and active engagement in others.
