Food documentary by two 11year olds, on Tonight, Saturday 2/6 at 10pm

You around tonight?  Check out this wonderfully inspiring documentary by two 11 year old girls, called “What’s on your plate?”.

I had the great fortune to preview it this week and I loved it.  The film follows the girls on their mission to answer questions like “why do people eat fast food?”, “why do we import food from across the world, when it is growing locally?”, “what are the impacts our diet has on our world?”, and many more.

I enjoyed watching the girls investigate, question, and find answers on their own.   Things we take for granted and just accept,  seen through the  fresh eyes of a child.  Why doesn’t every neighborhood have fresh food?  Why can’t everyone eat locally?  Why can’t the lunch system be reorganized so that we are purchasing locally and preparing fresh food, rather than defrosting?

Watching this documentary, I was re-inspired and reminded how important this food revolution is.  Shop your local farmers market.  Support your local food systems and your local farmers.  Plant a garden.  Prepare fresh food at home.   When we do these things, we all benefit.

The film airs tonight, Saturday, Feb 6th, at 10pm on Planet Green.

    I wonder if it will be aired again if we missed it?

    Not sure. It was worth trying to find! If you have trouble, let me know.
