In What's On Your Plate?, seven kids and their families explore the food chain, sharing fundamental questions and vital discoveries. With honesty, humor, and creativity, they face serious issues including the lack of access to fresh food; health problems such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and food allergies; and the national school lunch program. They celebrate time together by cooking and gathering at the table. The stories, recipes, and terrific activities in this book will inspire readers of all ages to be conscious of what they're eating and where it comes from, and to make positive changes in their homes, schools, and communities.

The What's On Your Plate? project about kids and food politics started out as a documentary film from the point of view of two curious 11-year-old girls, Sadie and Safiyah. The film was broadcast on Discovery Channel s Planet Green and has been screened hundreds of times around the world, from Washington to Wisconsin, Glasgow to Seoul. Along the way, the girls spoke with friends, teachers, farmers, food activists, politicians, and each other; their journey inspired this book.

As Sadie and Safiyah say, "We're talking about our neighborhood. What about yours?"

Praise for the Book:

This wonderful book gives children and their families a tangible, real way to reconnect with fresh, healthful, locally grown food. Like in the film, it's the children as well as the parents who ask the questions about what to eat and why.
--Alice Waters, founder of the Edible Schoolyard and owner of Chez Panisse

As we face critical food-related environmental and health challenges in cities and towns around the country, we must embrace change. This inspirational book, What's On Your Plate?, shows how people of all ages can make vital, genuine, and fun changes in our own lives and communities.
--Cory A. Booker, Mayor of Newark, NJ

As fun as it is informative, What's On Your Plate? shows us all why growing, cooking, and eating good food will make the whole world a healthier place. This important book should inspire us all to learn about food systems and make change in our families and communities.
--Bryant Terry, author of Vegan Soul Kitchen
