What’s on your plate? More importantly, what’s on your kid’s plate? That’s the question the documentary What’s On Your Plate? explores as it follows two 11-year-old multiracial city kids as they explore their place in the food chain.

Filmed over the course of a year, the film follows Sadie and Safiyah as they take a close look at food systems in New York City and its surrounding areas. With the camera as their companion, the girl guides talk to each other, food activists, farmers, new friends, storekeepers, their families, and the viewer, in their quest to understand what’s on all of our plates.

Girl Scout Troop 548 and the Edgemont and Bradford PTA, along with the MFEE, will host a free screening of  What’s On Your Plate? on Friday, June 15 at 6:30 pm. They are inviting the entire community to take part in this fun and enlightening event that is suitable for the entire family.
