Students and teachers learned more about how to be healthy by eating good food.
On Thursday September 10, the 5th Dominican Republic Environmental Film Festival (DREFF) screened the film Food Patriots at Loyola School.
The movie is about various proponents of food awareness, people who seek to undertake a revolution to change food consumption, and how food is grown and bought in the United States while educating the next generation of consumers.
The screening activity was attended by the film’s directors, Jennifer Amdur Spitz and Jeff Spitz, who shared their experiences with Loyola teachers and high school students.
The teachers were enthusiastic and grateful for the efforts being made by the festival to promote sustainable development in the Dominican Republic. “As always, the DREFF is bringing films that make us think and that motivate us to take action along with our students, in favor of the environment and health,” said Diana Murcia, one of the teachers at Loyola.
“The activity was fabulous. Now I have more tools to motivate my students to eat healthy food,” added Teodista Céspedes, another schoolteacher.
