Food, Inc.: The Dollar Menu

Streaming icon

In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. In this clip, a family compares the cost of eating fast food to healthier options at the grocery store. Students should discuss the economics of the food industry and how the cost of foods affects their choices.
