Metro Minute at Reel Food Film fest

After tonight, you might never look at food the same way again. The Reel Food Film Festival is screening What’s On Your Plate?, a provocative documentary about kids and food politics at the main branch of the Ottawa Public Library at 6:30 p.m. today.

The film by Catherine Gund follows two 11-year-old city kids as they explore their place in the food chain over the course of a year.

Sadie and Safiyah talk to food activists, farmers and storekeepers as they address questions regarding the origin of the food they eat, how it’s cultivated, and how many miles it travels from farm to fork.
