Two short films on the food system worth watching, Out to Pasture and Baltimore Food Ecology Documentary

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future, in the Bloomberg School of Public Health, produced two films, Out to Pasture and Baltimore Food Ecology Documentary, in conjunction with the Video and Film Arts Department at Maryland Institute College of Arts. The films tackle two important food systems issues. Out to Pasture addresses sustainable food animal production, contrasting animals raised in confinement operations with animals raised outdoors on diversified farms. Baltimore Food Ecology Documentary explores some of the issues with our modern day food system -food deserts, diet-related diseases- and highlights some of the ways people are making changes to improve access to healthy food in schools and communities.
