It’s so sad you hear people complain on both sides . If you try to eat healthy you hear people say who do they think they are eating organic and buying vegan foods we can’t even afford that . But if you get a cart full of sodas , chips , burgers and fries they say people on food stand are fat slobs . I’m tired of the stigma of food stamps many on them work or have worked and lost their jobs . They are people just like everyone else . They deserve healthy food as well is treats if they want to eat them . Stop complaining and help find better answers. Great movie wish everyone could see it .

Fantastic! Great to have a film that brings some awareness to the fact that eating well and taking care of your health takes money, but not only! this network knows it pretty well. It also needs knowledge and time to think and apply it. Not simple, huh? We could call it the tryad of privilege :) Great to have access to this great work. Thanks.

Wonderful, enlightening & inspiring. Thanks Shira and Yoav, and let's hope with more and more people interested and engaged in the 'food revolution' that change is coming - for all people, the world over. Healthy food is a human right!

Hi Tania! Totally agree with you :) If we are more informed on the issues, there would be more of a push to affect change. ☘ ~ Jasmin

great film..i think it showed how difficult it would be to live on a food stamp budget and eat well...they acknowledge their privilege in knowledge of nutrition, food preparation, and access to fresh locally sourced food. important topic.
