“Informative… Entertaining… Inspiring.”
– San Francisco Chronicle

“Food Stamped is a warm, delightful, and entertaining film with a serious message: it’s really difficult to eat healthfully on food stamp (SNAP) benefits even if you are educated, savvy, live near a decent grocery store or farmers’ market, have plenty of time and energy, and are a great cook.  Everyone should see this film, especially those who complain about how low-income people use their benefits.”
– Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, New York University, and author of “Food Politics.”

“I love this film! It is eye-opening and sobering, yet delivers its message with a warm heart and terrific spirit. One comes away inspired by our potential for inventiveness, and motivated to activism, rather than feeling defeated.”
– Mollie Katzen, Best-Selling Cookbook Author

“Food Stamped should be seen by anyone and everyone.  A surprisingly delightful film given the toughness of the subject.”
– Deborah Madison, Best-Selling Author
