Food, Inc.

Food, Inc. Discussion Guide

The documentary film Food, Inc. provides a critical look at the industrialized nature of our country’s food supply. It explores the relationship between how our food is produced and human health, workers’ rights, animal welfare, and other issues.

Award-winning filmmaker Robert Kenner and investigative authors Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation) and Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma) present how complicated the U.S. food system has become in the last few decades. In addition to compelling footage, the film includes the voices and stories of food experts, farmers, businessmen and women, government representatives, and food advocates.

While revealing many concerns about our food system, Food, Inc. also reminds us that we each have the ability to bring change to the system through our food choices.
