Food Film: July 2012


In some countries children pick crops for 14 hours a day. The United States is one of those countries!

The Food Film Festival, co-sponsored by the Dairy Creek Community Food Web (DCCFW) and the Forest Grove Grange, continues with “THE HARVEST/LA COSECHA”, an eye-opening documentary exposing the sacrifices of the children of migrant farm workers. The Harvest/La Cosecha, profiles these children as they travel from the scortching onion fields of Texas to the winter snows of Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of the Florida tomato harvest.

“In its modest way, calls to mind the Grapes of Wrath”—Mike Hale, New York Times

“There’s not a wasted frame in U Roberto Romano’s documentary of The Harvest, in which he illustrates the real cost of the produce on your grocer’s shelves” – Ernest Hardy, Village Voice

Following the movie we will entertain an open forum for discussion.

Although there is no admission charge for our film series, donations are encouraged to support this and future activities of the Dairy Creek Community Food Web. Light snacks will be available.
