Her goal with the film, Rockefeller said, “is to start a conversation about the things [she’s] most passionate about and empower people to take small actions that produce big changes. Conversation leads to collaboration, and together we can find local and global solutions that help the planet and ourselves.”

Food for All hosts a free meal every Thursday, except on the actual Thanksgiving itself, from 4-7 p.m. in the Parish Hall at the corner of Mount Desert Street and Ledgelawn Avenue. It’s both a weekly celebration and an education, open to everyone, with no paperwork or other barriers to participation.

“By educating children about food in a practical, fun and engaging way, we can provide them with the knowledge and skills they so urgently need to lead healthier, happier lives. We need to make practical food education a compulsory part of every school curriculum across the world, and that’s why I’ve launched a petition calling on all G20 countries to action this. With enough support from millions of people around the world, I truly believe that we can create a movement that’s powerful enough to make governments take action.” — Jamie Oliver (read more)
