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.
