In Defense of Food: Defend Food



If you’ve been inspired or intrigued by the film, you can join the producers to take a pledge to defend food in your homes and your communities. And doing that is really very simple.

  • Defend food at home by making changes to what you eat. As much as you can, replace “edible food-like substances” in your diet with real food.

  • Defend food in your community by organizing public screenings of the film, or holding house parties to view and discuss it.

  • To help get kids to defend food, use a series of 10 lesson plans inspired by the film that feature fun activities designed for middle school students in after-school programs.

  • Join the producer’s email list for updates on screenings, events and more.

Take the pledge to defend food and get all the resources you will need: toolkits and discussion guides for community screenings and house parties, a condensed 78-minute version of the film, and information about the lesson plans for students.
