Food on Film in Cleveland, Ohio
Cleveland’s Lakewood Public Library and Solon Cinemas teamed up with their local Whole Foods to present a collection of films about the food supply, environment, and visionary people who are making our food better one bite at a time.
The Let’s Retake Our Plates Film Series included an array of independent documentaries on the theme of food, including Nourish. The screenings were free and open to the public, with contests, prizes, food tastings, and guest-hosted discussions at every show.
“The intention is to support a community aware of the ‘life’ of the food on our plates,” explained John Kucinski, of Cleveland’s Cedar Center Whole Foods. “From farm to store to table, there are opportunities for us as consumers to become more engaged in the process and make mindful choices that best support our values. Step one is making the information accessible and encouraging a dialogue.”
