"Ask Before You Eat" Film Series. High School to Adult. Slow Food St. Louis teamed up with Gus & Wes Productions to produce three short films focused on questions you should ask before you buy the food you eat. These questions are appropriate when shopping at a farmer’s market, a grocery store, ordering at a restaurant or buying into a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. The questions are tools to find out the story behind our food. All foods have a story and these stories connect people to where our food is coming from, how it was produced and how far it traveled to the plate. It’s up to us to ensure that the food we eat has a good story! Slow Food St. Louis and Gus and Wes Productions.
