FOOD FOR THE FUTURE tells the story of the founding of the pioneering Floyd Boulevard Local Foods Market (Sioux City, IA) - the first farmers market in the nation to exclusively sell humanely raised animal products and organic/chemical free produce.

This 12 minute film demonstrates the how one community is "Breaking the Chains" by prioritizing local, organic and fair wages for farmers. In an era of Wal-Mart and the "Big Box" takeover of our food supply and local communities, the Floyd Boulevard Local Foods Market provides an antidote.

"This film is perfect for classes and meetings to begin the discuss around local, values added food," says Chef Kurt Friese, Slow Food USA. The video was produced by Chris Bedford, an award winning advocacy filmmaker.
