MOFAD to Screen “Nourishing Japan,” a Documentary About Japan’s Food Education and School Lunch

Nourishing Japan: Food Education & School Lunch in Japan

Thursday, February 20 from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.)

MOFAD – 62 Bayard Street, Brooklyn

Admission: $25

Embark on a delicious journey from farmer’s field to school classroom that celebrates how one country has re-imagined school lunch and food education. At the heart of Japan’s 2005 Food Education Law are the incredible people whose daily work nourishes the next generation’s relationship to food, the earth, and one another.

The Museum of Food and Drink will host documentary filmmaker Alexis Agliano Sanborn for the public premiere of Nourishing Japan. After the screening, I am honored to join a conversation with Sanborn and Yoriko Okamoto, an MA candidate at New York University’s Food Studies Department who served as research support for the film. Jennifer L. Pomeranz, Assistant Professor of Public Health Policy and Management at NYU, will give the opening remarks.

There will be a reception with sake courtesy of SOTO and bites courtesy of Bessou to follow.
