Food Frontiers is a documentary film which showcases six projects from around the United States that are increasing access to healthy food in varied and innovative ways, including:

  • A pioneering farm-to-school enterprise in southern California that has made local produce a staple in school district cafeterias and transformed the students’ diet
  • A pediatrician nicknamed Dr. Yum in Virginia who prescribes cooking classes for her patients and their parents and runs a commercial kitchen out of her medical practice
  • A nonprofit that develops farmers markets in high-need New York City neighborhoods
  • A community-based cooking education program called The Happy Kitchen in Austin, Texas
  • Philadelphia’s Fresh Food Financing Initiative, a public/private financing strategy that pieced together $190 million to upgrade supermarkets in Pennsylvania or build new ones

Discussion led by Allison Karpyn, PhD, chair of food and nutrition section of the Delaware Public Health Association.

Light food and refreshments provided.  Registration required.
