Think food justice is too tricky for kids? Think again.
What’s On Your Plate? proves that not only can kids understand the issues, they can actually teach other kids about how they are what they eat.
The film follows two eleven-year-old multi-racial city kids as they explore their place in the food chain. Sadie and Safiyah take a close look at food systems in New York City and its surrounding areas. With the camera as their companion, the girl guides talk to each other, food activists, farmers, new friends, storekeepers, their families, and the viewer, in their quest to understand what’s on all of our plates.
Don’t miss this chance to see this witty and provocative film on national television!
