"What's on Your Plate?" is a witty and provocative documentary  by award-winning producer and directer Catherine Gund about kids and food politics. Filmed over the course of one year, the film follows two eleven-year-old multi-racial city kids as they take a close look at food systems in New York City and its surrounding areas, talking with food activists, farmers, storekeepers, friends and family in their quest to understand what’s on all of our plates. Following will be a discussion and Q&A led by a speaker from the film.

Part I of Educating through Eating: A Two-Day Series on School Meals Reform presented by the Wagner Food Policy Alliance.

Part II is a Breakfast Discussion on Thursday, October 7th, at 9:30am, with school food consultant, chef, and Atlantic Monthly blogger, Kate Adamick.
