Synopsis :

We all experienced canteens. Today, following all social changes that question the feed business, the mass cantering is on the front line. It is absurd to keep malnurishing our kids.
Jean-Marc Mouillac is the first French head chef who obtained the Ecocert label in his canteen of the little town of Marsaneix.
After this first impulse, the work is not yet completed. Jean-Marc's team is now entrusted by the department of Dordogne to train cookers in canteens, to federate local producers and to support the transition of canteens on this territory.
The film proposes to follow this conversion via an immersion in the backstage of a canteen in the city of Sigoulès. Starting from what compose our meals, kids, cookers and others commited people are accompanied in their awareness of this social issue.
