In this 65-minute film, Craig, a natural foods chef and entrepreneur, explores the current state of our food supply and seeks to educate people about living healthier, more wholesome lives through socially responsible food choices. The film intends to raise national awareness through inspiring interviews and stories that capture the passion and personal investment of a diverse group of individuals. The documentary also educates everyone on the pandemic expansion of dangerous chemicals that were introduced into food seeds and crop soils at an alarming rate over the last 40 years. Revenues from the film go toward community projects that demonstrate the actions necessary to restore America's health. 20% of the sales go directly to our partner, Ann Cooper, and her School Lunch Revolution project. Here's a trailer from the film. Check it out and look for the DVD in your local Whole Foods Market.

We recently ran a popular article on our site about Chef Alice Waters about her program and book, The Edible Schoolyard. We see a trend growing wherein people are becoming very interested in a more holistic way of living that includes attention to real, un-chemicalized food.
