About the film

About the film: Created in 2021 by Caroline Cox and Tiffany Ayali, the documentary Food for the Rest of Us will examine how getting back to the land is tied to other movements such as Black Lives Matter, Idle No More and Times Up. Food for the Rest of Us is a feature film that presents four stories of people living life on their own terms, serving as leaders and role models who are lending their voice to the underdog and leading a revolution to a better world, from the ground up! 

The four stories: An Indigenous-owned, youth run organic farm in Hawaii; a Black urban grower in Kansas City who runs a land-farm at East High School; a female Kosher Butcher in Colorado working with the Queer Community; and an Inuit community on the Arctic Coast who are adapting to climate change with a community garden in a small geodesic dome.
