A midwestern family has been rattled by the near death of their son from foodborne illness. This food contamination scare shook the family up so much that they embarked on a roller coaster journey to understand the food industry and improve the family’s eating habits. The family begins their journey to health by starting a vegetable garden, raising chickens in their own backyard and asking the real questions such as, "Where does our food actually come from?".
Food Patriots is surprising, funny, and poignant, as this personal film unfolds from one family's story into a powerful consumer movement. Food Patriots features food advocates from all walks of life who are trying to hatch a revolution to change the way Americans eat and buy food, and educate the next generation of consumers.
