We hear things on a daily basis about where our food comes from. But, do we get a true, accurate picture? Whatr if we looked at the whole picture? What if we could literally see what it takes to get food to our plate?

Hosted by the Listowel Agricultural Society with support from CIBC Private Wealth Investment, we are happy to have guest Anita Stewart, Culinary Activist, join us for a screening of the film Before the Plate.

Starring 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, 10,000km driven, 8 farm operations followed, this film ends up back at the plate where it started.
