"Teo in Toronto" uncovers the roots of what we eat and questions the links between poverty and our food supply. Ten years ago Min Sook Lee shot a documentary about migrant farm workers in south western Ontario. Now she reconnects with Teodoro Martinez, one of the farmers, as he leaves his farm in Leamington, Ontario and travels to Toronto to meet with community activists to talk about poverty, food security and labour rights. The film focuses on Teodoro meeting a group of homeless youth who grow their own food in a community garden located in the west end neighbourhood of Parkdale.
