- Food Patriots begins with a wakeup call: our son got sick eating chicken contaminated with a superbug, and antibiotics failed. Our personal story of changing the way our family thinks about food, starting a garden, getting backyard chickens leads to a discovery of a social justice movement all around us that is changing the way America eats.
When it comes to healthcare, the environment, jobs and national security; changing the way America eats is the most patriotic thing we can do. So we call people who are doing this Food Patriots.
Food Patriots film and public events offer inspiring stories and a practical approach: change what you buy and what you eat by 10%.Think: local, fresh, organic, sustainable. We vote with our food dollars. Together Food Patriots send a powerful signal to the marketplace, and we demand change.
