Food, Inc. – with Panel Discussion | Thurs. April 1 – 6:15pm – ATC Auditorium
Food, Inc. exposes the highly mechanized underbelly of food production that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers, and our environment. Featuring interviews with experts Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield’s Gary Hirshberg and Polyface Farms’ Joel Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprising—and often shocking truths—about what we eat.
Following the film, panelists active in the local food movement will discuss the film and their visions for re-building a healthy, local food supply.
