Showing Tues, Jan. 17 at 7pm at the Mockingbird in downtown Staunton. Doors open at 5:30 for dinner.

Food Stamped is an informative and humorous documentary film following a couple as they attempt to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet on a food stamp budget. Through their adventures they consult with members of U.S. Congress, food justice organizations, nutrition experts, and people living on food stamps to take a deep look at America’s broken food system. (62 minutes)

“I love this film! It is eye-opening and sobering, yet delivers its message with a warm heart and terrific spirit. One comes away inspired by our potential for inventiveness, and motivated to activism, rather than feeling defeated.”

– Mollie Katzen, Best-Selling Cookbook Author

“Food Stamped should be seen by anyone and everyone.  A surprisingly delightful film given the toughness of the subject.”

– Deborah Madison, Best-Selling Author
