This documentary focuses on an issue that directly touches all of us — food. “Food Patriots” tells personal stories that show ordinary people taking control of food and creating healthier lives, a less polluted environment, a new sense of community and new jobs. Weaved in a humorous tapestry of stories, it exemplifies the way people are changing the way Americans eat, buy and educate the next generation about food.

Approx. 72min

Screening followed by discussion facilitated by Jeff Spitz, “Food Patriots” filmmaker.

If you require any accommodations please contact us at least three days before the event.

Co-sponsors: UIC student organizations FUEGO, Gamma Phi Omega, and the Heritage Garden Student Task Force
