About the film
FOOD FOR CHANGE (82 minutes)
Food For Change focuses on food co-ops as a force for dynamic social and economic change in American culture. This is the first film to examine the important historical role played by food co-ops, their pioneering quest for organic foods, and their current efforts to create regional food systems. Additionally, the film shows how cooperatives today strengthen local economies and build food security. The goal is to educate a wide audience about the principles of cooperation with a focus on healthy food and a healthy economy.
CAMP YOSHI (10 minutes)
Driven by the magic of his experiences, his background as a chef, and his love of good food and connecting people to incredible places that open up to conversation, Rashad Frazier created Camp Yoshi, which curates custom outdoor adventures centered around shared meals and shared experience with the goal of creating a space for Black people and allies to unplug and in turn reconnect with the wilderness.
