Do we know what our children are eating? This is a true story of how farsighted and dedicated individuals – parents, educators, public health advocates, and food system reformers – unite to change how children eat, how they learn in school, and how the whole community can restore healthy food systems in a climate-changing world.

Focused on the real-life experience of community advocates and food professionals that have worked with educators in Berkeley, CA, this is an interactive session using short films and expert discussion to inspire change in the way kids eat. Learn more about food systems reform, what others have done successfully, and what it means for our community.

Discussion with: Helen De Michiel and Sophie Constantinou, filmmakers; David McClellan and Jonathan Hill, Farm Fresh Choice; Kathryn Boyle, Community Benefit Programs, Kaiser Permanente.
