Dive!  A documentary about America's food waste problem, directed by Jeremy Seifert
This documentary provides an entirely different perspective than Food, Inc:  perfectly-good food (sometimes organic!) that goes to waste.  With a viewing time of under 60 minutes, this film is sure to bring awareness and provoke discussion about America's throwaway culture.

"Starved by the Bell" from Jon Stewart's Daily Show
This short clip from Jon Stewart explains the new USDA school lunch requirements while poking fun at those who complain that they are still hungry.  Students can also discuss the elements of an effective argument:  is Stewart believable?  Why/how is Stewart funny?  How does he use  humor to make his point?
