Join BloomBars and Cultivating Intergenerational Leaders for delicious free organic food and a great movie, as they present…What's on Your Plate? (2009, 76 min), by Catherine Gund – is a witty and provocative documentary about kids and food politics. Over the course of one year, the film follows two eleven-year-old multiracial friends from NYC as they explore their place in the food chain. 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. Sadie and Safiyah formulate sophisticated and compassionate opinions about urban sustainability, and by doing so inspire hope and active engagement in others. The film will be followed by a Q&A discussion with local anti-hunger, child food activists.

Cultivating Intergenerational Leaders, is a summer intergenerational program in Washington, D.C., that will use the community food system as a tool to give youth and college students the opportunity to build life skills such as active learning, self-reliance, and healthy living. This project seeks to create a more sustainable food system in DC by empowering those directly impacted by the negative effects of the industrial food system.
