Change Your Life, Change the World Ten Percent at a Time

Food Patriots is a film and public engagement campaign that inspires people to make a small change in the way they eat and buy food. This premiere includes a post-screening discussion with the filmmakers and faith-based environmental groups. Food Patriots begins with a wake-up call. Jeff and Jennifer Spitz’s son Sam got sick eating chicken contaminated with a superbug, and antibiotics failed. The film chronicles the family’s newfound interest in food sources, and the people they meet who are changing the way America eats, buys and educates the next generation of consumers. They call these people Food Patriots.

The screening is on Sunday, Feb. 23 from 12:45 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Temple Sholom, 3480 N. Lake Shore Drive in Chicago.

Food Patriots filmmakers Jeff Spitz and Jennifer Amdur Spitz, and Faith in Place, an organization that inspires religious people of diverse faiths to care for the Earth through connection, education and advocacy want to make it clear that what you don’t know about your food can make you sick, if not, kill you. They put the spotlight on local Food Patriots and their initiatives, reinforcing the idea that Food Patriots are everywhere and anyone can enter this picture and share their food story. That’s why Food Patriots is showing in schools, faith organizations, businesses and community groups—anywhere people gather and socialize.

Chipotle will offer a free burrito lunch to those who RSVP online by Feb. 19.
