Food for Thought is a film whose mission is to start a conversation about our food system, bringing everyone to the table to address how we think about, produce, and choose what we eat, and to make lasting changes as individuals, communities, and for our earth as a whole.
We want our food fast, convenient and cheap, but at what cost? As farms have become supersized, our environment suffers and so does the quality of our food. Susan Rockefeller’s short film, Food for thought, Food for Life (20 min.) explains the downsides of current agribusiness practices, and also introduces us to farmers, chefs, researchers, educators, and advocates who are providing solutions. The film is both poetic and practical; its powerful examination of the connections between our planet and our well-being is accompanied by specific strategies that protect both. With an eye towards a sustainable and abundant future, it offers inspiration for communities that are ready to make a difference.
This film is an inspirational guide for all of us, as we make the necessary shift from being disassociated from our food sources, to learning how we can be a part of our food systems, for the betterment of our individual health, the health of our families and communities, and for the health of the Planet.
