Before The Plate is being screened tonight at the Capitol Theatre.

The documentary follows all the steps your food has to get through before it gets to you.

Kim Cooper, Agricultural Specialist with the Municipality of Chatham-Kent says much is lost along the way.

“In terms of food production, there are many factors involved in the cost of growing food for Ontario consumers. To respond to growing consumer demand, Ontario producers are improving the environmental sustainability of their operations. They are implementing programs that continue to ensure the safety of food right from the farm gate to your dinner plate,” says Cooper.

The curtain rises at 7pm. Admission is by donation of a canned good.
