The Stisted and Huntsville Agricultural Societies and Main St. Local Kitchen will host a special screening of the documentary Before the Plate: The questions, the stories, and the people behind where our food comes from and how it gets to our plate on June 5. This is a not-for-profit outreach event to educate, unite, and connect everyone to our food industries. The screening will be followed by discussions with local agricultural and food industry representatives.
Before the Plate attempts to close the gap in perception between the urban consumer and farming in Canada. Modern consumers are increasingly interested in where and how their food gets to them, but accurate information is hard to come by and often feels out of reach. Before the Plate follows young farmers and industry experts in order to show the general population what a modern Canadian farm operation looks like, and answer the most pressing questions consumers have about their food.
The documentary follows food staples of the Canadian diet all the way from the farm to the harvesting and processing operations and showcase 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.
Before the Plate will be screened on June 5, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) at the Algonquin Theatre. Tickets are $10 per person and are available via the Algonquin Theatre box office or online here.
