tough to watch
5 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Great subject for a documentary but I struggle so hard with the solutions given. Only the second grade teacher was even close to touching on the subject. We have to teach children at a young age to GROW their own food. Some of these families are living in areas where they say they can not buy fresh produce yet the grass around their house is 6 inches tall. Start small,lettuce seeds... that's how I learned. I can feed my family for three dollars a day on huge veggie sandwiches. Sure, it's not going to solve the problem over night but kids, parents, teachers just need to change their idea about what REAL food is. Edible landscaping in schools with kids learning about seeds! Charities handing out cookies and sh*t snacks is only making the problem worse. Don't ask Washington for help!! You're never going to get it. We need churches and charities to give people seeds. Learn to grow your own food, harvest the seeds, and you will never be hungry again.
