Food Patriots Project at the Community Schools

Scientists for Tomorrow in collaboration with Food Patriots, is offering an opportunity for your community organizations to have their sites learn about food choices and be featured in the media. This Saturday, December 6, 2014 at the Family Science Day, Emmy award winner, Jeff Spitz will join us to talk about the Food Patriot project.

Food Patriots Project

Touched by their teenage son’s battle with a foodborne superbug, filmmakers Jeff & Jennifer Spitz document their family’s struggle to raise backyard chickens, grow food, and transform into Food Patriots.  This film features inspiring stories about ordinary people who are changing the way consumers think about food for the better.

Concerned over the long-term health threats to young people today, many parents and teachers realized that food habits start with the young and are hard to change. The Food Patriots film and education program in collaboration with Scientists For Tomorrow aims to inspire a young generation of eaters to make better food choices and to engage their parents and communities in conversations about  healthier food choices. Food Patriots offers a practical approach and culturally relevant solutions to eating better and saving money.  This is a tool for any community centers that wants to start this conversation.
