"Food Patriots" focuses on an issue that directly touches all of us — food. The film tells personal stories that show ordinary people taking control of food and creating healthier lives, a less polluted environment, a new sense of community and new jobs. Touched by his son's struggle with food-borne illness, filmmaker Jeff Spitz weaves one family's experience into a tapestry of stories about people who are changing the way Americans eat, buy and educate the next generation about food.
