Food For the Future

FOOD FOR THE FUTURE tells the story of the founding of the pioneering Floyd Boulevard Local Foods Market - the first farmers market in the nation to exclusively sell humanely raised animal products and organic/chemical free produce. This 12 minute film is designed to help consumers and farmers advocate for what Fred Kirschenmann calls "Local plus" food systems -- local food systems built around higher values of humane treatment of animals and respect for nature's rules and processes (organic/chemical-free). "This film is perfect for classes and meetings to begin the discuss around local, values added food," says Chef Kurt Friese, Slow Food USA. The video was produced by Chris Bedford, an award winning advocacy filmmaker. Chris Bedford makes films and videos designed to help communities build a sustainable economy -- beginning with a local, healthy food system. Visit his website at for more information.
