Real Food Is…


For the 4th Annual Farm to Cafeteria Conference in Portland, Oregon last March, Action for Healthy Kids and the Community Food Security Coalition sponsored a video contest for students in elementary school, middle school, high school and college. The challenge was to “produce a 30 second to 3 minute video that informs, inspires, and encourages student advocacy to restore connections to community, food, land, and place through Farm to Cafeteria programs.”

The winning videos are entertaining and inspiring to say the least.
