2018 Sacramento Food Film Festival – Farmers for America

By Food Literacy center

Back Event Aug 14 @ 5:30 pm

In partnership with America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital and the Sacramento Public Library, the Sacramento Food Film Festival celebrates food and drink paired with films about our food system.

Farmers for America asks the question: Who will feed us? The average age of the U.S. farmer is 60 and half of America’s farmland is going to change hands in the next 12 years. Narrated by Mike Rowe, this is the story of young people who are stepping up to help solve this agricultural crisis.
