Event Details

An evening with filmmaker Helen De Michiel and special guests
Presented by the David Brower Center in partnership with the Berkeley FILM Foundation and Impact Hub Berkeley

"Never again will a single story be told as if it were the only one."

Expanding the boundaries of documentary, Lunch Love Community is an open space documentary project, offering a mosaic-like suite of short films to watch and share in an evolving media “open space.” It integrates social media, shareable films, tools and resources for users of all kinds: parents, educators, food professionals, nutrition advocates and policy makers. This is a true story of how farsighted and dedicated individuals unite to change how children eat, how they learn in school, and how to restore healthy food systems in a climate-changing world.

What happens when a community, in the name of their children’s health and well-being, moves from anger to action to transform their neglected school lunch program?  Since the 1990s, a diverse group of Berkeley, California parents decided to change the system because it wasn’t working for children. They’ve gotten kids into the gardens and into the kitchens. They’ve changed the school food, and they’re making education and nutrition policy history.

 

Helen Demichiel, director of the film will lead a discussion with the following panel:

Adam Berman from Urban Adamah an educational farm and community center

Rivka Mason, a gardener and founding teacher of the gardening program at Malcolm X Elementary School

David McClellan, the Farm Fresh Choice Manager for The Ecology Center

Johnathan Hill, an Outreach Specialist for Lifelong Medical Care

Charlotte Biltekoff, a Ph.D. Associate Professor at UC Davis and author of Eating Right in America: The Cultural Politics of Food and Health

Tickets: $10 Advance/ $12 Door
