This paper explores the meaning of food in the context of social media, empathy, disability, and sustainability. We performed research on each topic in relation to food. We furthered our understanding by then writing a movie script that encompasses these concepts into a cohesive and easy to understand short film. Through this process we have been able to identify strong links between food and social media, empathy, disability, and sustainability. The goal of this paper is to explain to the reader why food is so important not just in the context of nutrition but because of the large impact it has on how people interact, communicate, and even struggle with food.
