Where's My Food?!

  1. Enjoy watching this trailer for "Where’s My Food?!," a new documentary feature that serves up the surprising truth about waiters and waitresses.

    Would you be surprised to know that Americans spend half of their food dollars – $660 billion per year – in restaurants? (Fifty years ago they spent only 20% of their food budget eating out.) That kind of revenue empowered the National Restaurant Association (a.k.a. “the other NRA”) to successfully lobby Congress in 1996 to keep the federal minimum wage for tipped workers at $2.13/hour. It’s been that low ever since.

    In the film you’ll meet nine food servers who represent a diverse mix of ages, backgrounds and incomes. (One in ten Americans works in food service.) Brought to light are often-hidden struggles with the NRA, poverty-level wages, discrimination, substance addictions, and serious health issues that impact coworkers and customers.

    Frequent restaurant customers candidly admit how they sometimes “punish” servers by leaving very low tips. However these same customers show little awareness of how waiters and waitresses actually earn their living. "Where’s My Food?!" takes viewers behind the scenes into the “back of the house,” where chefs and cooks rule.

    You'll also hear from academic and industry experts who explain how tipping works from psychological and socioeconomic perspectives, how an executive chef runs his restaurants with an iron fist and a soft heart, and how consumers can drive positive change through awareness and political action.
