Fresh: New thinking about what we're eating

Fresh is a great film about improving our food system. It’s more action-oriented than Food Inc., and has a more optimistic tone than, for instance, this blog. The film focuses on what many good, smart people are doing to affect change within our food system, and not on scaring viewers or bumming them out.

It also features lots of face time with some of the most important characters in the good food movement: Michael Pollan, Joel Salatin, Will Allen of Growing Power, and George Naylor of the National Family Farm Coalition.

It’s in limited release and depends on grassroots distribution, so consider hosting a home or community screening. You can also order a DVD.
