First We Eat 1x101, 1x55

First We Eat puts food security to the test in the far North of Canada. Filmmaker Suzanne Crocker, living just 300 kilometres from the Arctic Circle, removes absolutely all grocery store food from her house. For one year, she feeds her family of five, only food that can be hunted, fished gathered, grown or raised around Dawson City, Yukon. Add three skeptical teenagers, one reluctant husband, no salt, no caffeine, no sugar, and -40 temperatures. Ultimately the story becomes a celebration of community and the surprising bounty of food that even a tiny community in the far North can provide.

After all, “First we eat, then we do everything else.” – MFK Fisher
