The Real Cost of Our Food takes a closer look at the California Central Valley and the economic externalities, such as environmental pollution and resultant health problems to poor, mostly Latino farm workers, that disguise the real cost of food. This is also a film about social mobilization. Reporter Josh Harkinson will be Skyped in from California and Rachel Alexander, the film maker, will be on hand to provide an update and engage with the audience on the question of just how hard, or easy, it is to solve the thorny and persistent problem of these economic externalities.
