Boston, Mass- Seed & Sprout: Growing the Food Rescue Revolution will have it’s world premiere at the Colorado Environmental Film Festival.
“In 2015, one in six American experienced hunger while over 40% of food produced in the USA went uneaten. Seed & Sprout travels coast to coast across America and visits eight innovative food rescue initiatives as they seek to bridge the gap between want and waste. From prison farms and grocery store donations delivered solely by bicycle, to gleaning from Harvard University dining halls, these go-getters encourage a whole new generation of creative responses to ending hunger and shrinking landfills. Their focus is on morphing discarded healthy food into nourishment. They examine sources of wasted food, cracks in our nation’s food donation system and provide feasible solutions. Their objective is to enrich the health of our planet and its residents. Seed & Sprout asks: can ordinary people end hunger in America by redistributing a small percentage of wasted food flooding our food system and landfills?”
From KIDS FIRST! Film Festival
This well-crafted documentary should be a must see for any program addressing social change in the USA. Certainly the issue of food insecurity is paramount in this country and often overlooked. The filmmaker has done an admirable job of covering important programs that are making a difference and leading the way. If the subject fits your film festival or special event, I highly recommend it for ages 13 to 18 and adults as well. It is well produced with clear video, audio, a blend of interviews and images of programs in action. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
The Colorado Environmental Film Festival is February 23-25, 2017.
