Lunch Love Community
Health and Wellness • 1h 17m
Directed by Helen De Michiel • Documentary • 2015 • 78 minutes
LUNCH LOVE COMMUNITY is a beautiful and engaging story of how a diverse group of pioneering parents and food advocates came together to tackle food reform and food justice in the schools and neighborhoods of Berkeley, CA.
Through a mosaic of twelve interconnecting short documentaries, the film explores food and education, children and health, and citizens making democratic change. This is a rich and multi-dimensional story of passion, creative energy, and idealism—a project linking the ways we teach our children to eat and understand food to the traditional passing of powerful values from one generation to the next.
