Generation Food Project

With a billion hungry and two billion overweight people on Earth, everyone knows that the food system is broken. But few people understand that it’s a system, with rules that keep things ticking along. Investors and corporations make millions. Billions suffer the consequences. But a few groups are breaking the rules of how we eat today, so that everyone can eat tomorrow. Steve James (Life Itself, The Interrupters, Hoop Dreams) and Raj Patel (Stuffed and Starved, The Value of Nothing) weave together tales of the system’s destructive creators and creative destroyers, bringing together traders, farmers, grocers and eaters from India to Malawi to Peru, Maine and Oakland to show not only how the system works, but how some unlikely people are transforming it.
