About FRESH the Movie
"FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, a 2008 MacArthur's "Genius Award" fellow; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan's book, the Omnivore's Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, who is creating a new market model for our family farmers. FRESH's focus on these inspiring individuals and their initiatives around the US provides the audience with actionable solutions. FRESH is a call to action."
-Ana Sofia Joanes, FRESH creator
While this isn't a "vegan" movie it is about becoming more in touch with what the country, and increasingly the world is eating and getting acquainted with plants which are missing from the diets of so many. It's a path on the road to more compassionate living.
Zenger Farm is a working urban farm that models, promotes and educates about sustainable food systems, environmental stewardship, community development and access to good food for all.
