There have been a number of screenings of Food For Change
already. Some drew large crowds; others only a few people. Consult with us to increase your chances of having a successful show.
Spread The Word
Now that the film is completed, we need help reaching more people with its inspiring story of cooperation. We are currently putting together a marketing plan to get a realistic handle on the film's potential audience.
