The first time I saw this film, I was appalled at the mess that is our food system. This time, though, I felt more empowered to do something about it. The movie ends with a silent series of sentences. Maybe you too will find some ideas of what you can do to effect change.
"You can vote to change this system...Three times a day."
"Buy from companies that treat workers, animals, and the environment with respect."
"When you go to the supermarket, choose foods that are in season. Buy foods that are organic. Know what's in your food. Read labels."
"Know what you buy. The average meal travels 1500 miles from the farm to the supermarket. Buy foods that are grown locally. Shop at farmers' markets. Plant a garden. (Even a small one.)"
"Cook a meal with your family and eat together."
"Everyone has a right to healthy food. Make sure your farmers' market takes food stamps. Ask your school board to provide healthy school lunches."
"The FDA and USDA are supposed to protect you and your family. Tell Congress to enforce food safety standards and re-introduce Kevin's Law."
"If you say grace, ask for food that will keep us and the planet healthy."
"You can change the world with every bite. Hungry for change? Go to takepart.com/foodinc."
