The main thing about eating whole foods and not processed is you need two things: 1) Know or learn to cook, and 2) Time to prepare those foods. Most homes are two wage earner homes and don't have the time to plan healthy meals, then to shop for the food, and then to prepare the food. People who are working have a time-management challenge. People on food stamps don't necessarily have the time problem of planning, shopping on a budget, and then preparing meals; their main problem is education in how to make a healthy diet lifestyle change and how to work within the food stamp budget. Healthy people make better workers enabling the poor to find and keep a job. Working or not working families both have their challenges. Growing your own groceries would alleviate a lot of hunger and their food budget go a lot further. Education and time are the key values here. Thanks to Shira and her husband for making this documentary. Hopefully, it will inspire the haves to donate their time to educating the have-nots and giving back to their community by teaching people "how to fish" and feed the poor for a lifetime.

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!
