Description: Food Stamped is a documentary film following a couple as they attempt to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet on a food stamp budget. 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.
The cost of each film is a suggested donation of $5.00. Proceeds benefit Slow Food St. Louis’ Small Farm Micro Biodiversity Grant, which has given $47,000 to local farmers. Food on Film Series is sponsored by: Chipotle Mexican Grill* and Schlafly Beer.
*About our 2013 program sponsor, Chipotle Mexican Grill:
Steve Ellis, founder, chairman and co-CEO, started Chipotle with the idea that food served fast did not have to be a typical fast food experience. Today, Chipotle continues to offer a focused menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls (a burrito without the tortilla) and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients, prepared using classic cooking methods and served in a distinctive atmosphere. Through our vision of Food With Integrity, Chipotle is seeking better food from using ingredients that are not only fresh, but that – where possible – are sustainably grown and naturally raised with respect for the animals, the land, and the farmers who produce the food. A similarly focused people culture, with an emphasis on identifying and empowering top performing employees, enables us to develop future leaders from within. Chipotle opened with a single restaurant in 1993 and currently operates more than 1,400 restaurants. For more information visit Chipotle.com.
