A Right to Eat
Written & Directed by  Janelle Wookey & Jérémie Wookey
48:47 | Documentary | Colour | Feb 2015 | Winnipeg, Canada

Northern Manitoba: With a jug of milk ringing in at over $14 in some of the provinces lowest income communities, it’s not difficult to imagine how grocery bills can account for up to 80% of the household budget or why Diabetes rates have hit 50% in some regions of the north. Local studies have shown that food insecurity rates in northern Manitoba are coming in between 70% and 80%. That’s approximately eight times the national average. Poor diets and restricted access to fresh, healthy foods are having a devastating impact on peoples mental and physical health.

A Right to Eat follows regular families, living in Northern Manitoba, in their fight to put healthy food on the table. A deeply intimate look at the frightening realities of food insecurity as faced by two of Canada’s most isolated northern First Nation communities and their courageous battle against hunger, disease and dependency.
