Is it possible to eat healthy on a food stamp budget?Added to the calendar on Thursday May 10th, 2012 2:27 PM
SF Green Film Festival presents this special screening and Q&A with Bay Area filmmakers Shira and Yoav Potash, moderated by Julian Mocine-McQueen, Campaign and Partnerships Manager, Green for All.
This informative and humorous documentary film follows nutritionist Shira Potash and her documentary filmmaker husband Yoav as they attempt to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet on a food stamp budget. Shira teaches healthy cooking classes to elementary students in low-income neighborhoods, most of whom are eligible for food stamps. In an attempt to to walk a mile in their shoes, Shira and Yoav embark on the “Food Stamp Challenge”, eating on roughly one dollar per meal. Through their adventures they consult with members of U.S. Congress, food justice organizations, nutrition experts, and people living on food stamps to take a deep look at America’s broken food system.
