This film is the Communications capstone project of Sara DeForest and Scott Silverman, who recently graduated from Tufts University. The name of the documentary is “Know Your Roots: Eat Local” and it details five important reasons to eat local food. We interviewed several local food activists from Boston who tell the story of why local is beneficial for you, for your community and for your future. There is also footage of various local food events in the area such as the Souper Bowl, Meat Meet, farmers’ markets and the Relocalization conference. We hope that our film shows you that local food is widely available in New England, and any small step toward a local food system is a good one.
