Filmmaker and Mom, Amy Kalafa of Weston, CT, made the movie, “Two Angry Moms” because she was fed up with her children eating highly processed food filled with additives and preservatives at school.
Now, a group of local Moms in the Providence area want other RI Moms to come together to look at what our children are eating in our schools, and learn what we can do to ensure they are eating food that is better for them.
A growing number of kids aren’t getting enough vital nutrients, the kind found only in real, whole foods.Â If your kids are eating pizza, chicken nuggets and 100-calorie snack bags, chances are they aren’t getting the right kind of nutrition for proper growth, academic and athletic performance.
Timely, controversial and cutting edge, Two Angry Moms, the film and the movement, address an issue of great concern to parents across the country.Â What is happening to the health of our children and how does school food factor in?
Two Angry Moms, the film, will be shown the Rochambeau Library on Hope Street in Providence on Thursday, March 31st at 7:00 pm.Â The movie chronicles what happens when the fed-up moms start a grass-roots revolution aimed at establishing programs that safeguard the health of our kids.
Amy Kalafa documents the efforts of leaders in the fledgling better school food movement, as they take on the system across the country in this eye-opening documentary.Â Two Angry Moms shows not only what is wrong with school food; it offers strategies for overcoming roadblocks and getting real food into school cafeterias.Â All over America, Amy discovers programs that connect the cafeteria with the classroom and connect our kids with the earth.Â The movie explores the roles the federal government, corporate interests, school administration and parents play in feeding our country’s school kids.
