“Food for Thought, Food for Life was our first film of the festival and we received nothing but positive comments about it.  The big surprise and “ah-ha” moment was the section about urban farming and the guys who were talking about building gardens in schools and neighborhoods. The solutions presented really excited the audience. Well done on you!”
