A Fresh Approach to Food
Saturday, August 08, 2009
Pequot Library and the Fairfield Green Food Guide, LLC present the first community screening in Connecticut of the newly released documentary food film FRESH on Wednesday, August 12 at 7 pm in the Library's auditorium.
FRESH, a widely-acclaimed production of documentary filmmaker Ana Sofia Joanes offers "new thinking about what we're eating" at a time when the potentially lethal consequences of our industrialized food system have become standard items in our daily news diet.
FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, a 2008 MacArthur's "Genius Award" fellow; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan's book, The Omnivore's Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, who is creating a new market model for our family farmers.
What: Film at 7 pm (72 min.), followed by an educational panel discussion and exhibition of local-sustainable food resources.
When: Wednesday, August 12th, 7 PM
Where: Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Avenue, Southport
Admission: Tickets: Available for $5. Proceeds go to Pequot Library and a local-sustainable food initiative.
