What's On Your Plate?
Sunday, January 24 at 2pm

What's On Your Plate?

A witty and thoughtful documentary about kids and food politics Followed by a lively cooking workshop for the whole family. Film + Kid-Friendly Cooking Workshop with Bhavani Jaroff. $9 Members / $12 Public (Includes Reception)


What's On Your Plate? follows two eleven-year-old kids as they explore their place in
the food chain. With the camera as their companion, Sadie and Safiyah talk to food
activists, farmers, storekeepers and families. The girls address questions regarding the
origin of the food they eat, how itÂÂs cultivated, how many miles it travels from the harvest to
their plate, who prepares it, and what is done afterwards with the packaging and leftovers.
They visit supermarkets, fast food chains, and school lunchrooms. But they also check into
sustainable food system practices by going to farms, greenmarkets, and community-supported agriculture programs. They discover
that these programs both help farmers to survive and provide affordable, locally-grown food to communities, especially to lowerincome
urban families. In WhatÂÂs On Your Plate?, the two friends formulate sophisticated and compassionate opinions on the state of
their society, and by doing so inspire hope and active engagement in others. (USA, 2009, 73 min., color; Dir. Catherine Gund)
