Do people have the right to know what is in their food? Should companies be able to own the DNA contained in plant seeds? When deciding what to eat, how much should we consider the workers who pick, process, and transport our food?

Those are all questions high school students are encouraged to think about in the new Food Inc. Discussion Guide, developed by the Center for Ecoliteracy. A companion to the documentary, the guide will be distributed to schools across the country.

The guide is 102 pages of of thought-provoking and questions that get students talking about health, sustainability, animal welfare and workers’ rights.
