Join us at Marra Farm in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood for a Farm tour and outdoor screening of the film, "What’s on Your Plate?" The film is a provocative and entertaining documentary capturing two 11-year-old African-American girls as they explore the politics of food in America. With the audience as their companion, the girls talk with each other, farmers, food activists, and their families to learn what ends up on our plates and how it gets there, from cultivation to market. With tremendous sophistication and compassion, these culinary enthusiasts inspire hope and active engagement from all members of the family, laying the groundwork for a future of healthy habits and tasty flavors. (Recommended for all ages.)
All proceeds from the Movie Night will benefit Solid Ground’s
Lettuce Link / Marra Farm program. Marra Farm is a model urban community farm engaging people in sustainable agriculture and education while enhancing local food security.
