This well crafted documentary should be a must see for any program addressing social change in the USA. Certainly the issue of food insecurity is paramount in this country and often overlooked. The filmmaker has done an admirable job of covering important programs that are making a difference and leading the way. Although it is perhaps a bit on the long side, if then subject fits your film festival or special event, I highly recommend it for ages 13 to 18 and adults as well. It is well produced with clear video, audio, a blend of interviews and images of programs in action. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
In 2015, one in six Americans experienced hunger while over 40% of food produced in the USA went uneaten. The film follows eight innovative food rescue initiatives across the USA. From prison farms and grocery store donations delivered solely by bicycle, to gleaning from Harvard University dining halls, these go-getters encourage a new generation of creative responses to ending hunger and shrinking landfills. Their focus is on morphing discarded healthy food into nourishment. Seed & Sprout asks: can ordinary people end hunger in America by redistributing a small percentage of the wasted food flooding our food system and dumping grounds?
