Before the Plate film screening to be presented in Listowel

LISTOWEL - We hear things on a daily basis about where our food comes from. But do we get a true, accurate picture?

What if we looked at the whole picture? What if we could literally see what it takes to get food to our plate?

The Before the Plate film screening is coming to Listowel on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at the Listowel Agricultural Hall.

Hosted by the Listowel Agricultural Society and supported by CIBC Private Wealth Management, the event starts at 6:30pm with a Taste of Local.

The film screening is at 7:30pm with a panel discussion to follow.

Admission is a donation to the Food Bank.

The evening will feature Elora’s Anita Stewart, culinary activist and chief party planner.

She has written 14 cookbooks, numerous articles and is a broadcaster and speaker.

She has travelled all over Canada, is a member of the Order of Canada, a Food Laureate at the University of Guelph and is the President of Food Day Canada and Flavours of Canada.

Her mantra? Canada is food and the world is richer for it.

The film features John Horne, executive chef of the downtown Toronto restaurant Canoe.

Before the Plate showcases 10 ingredients from planting to cooking and everything in between to help better connect the modern consumer with their food.

The film challenges modern myths about farming and reveals the obstacles the industry faces as it moves forward. After 32 days of shooting, 10,000 km driven, and eight farm operations followed, this film ends up back at the plate where it started.

Created by Dylan Sher, producer and Sagi Kahane-Rapport, director, Before the Plate attempts to close the gap in perception between the urban consumer and farming in Canada.

Before the Plate follows young farmers and industry experts, showing the general population what a modern Canadian farm operation looks like, and answering pressing questions consumers have about their food.

The film follows food staples of the Canadian diet, all the way from the farm to the harvesting and processing operations, and showcases the final product at Canoe, one of Toronto’s most prestigious restaurants.

The project follows various types of agriculture, including both organic and conventional practices to answer some of the biggest questions related to farming in our society.

This event coincides with Canada’s Agriculture Day on February 12th.

The Listowel Agricultural Hall is fully accessible. For more information e-mail: listowelfair@gmail.com or call 519-291-06440.
