Film and Discussion: Food for Thought. Food for Life

Thursday, April 19, 2018

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

We want our food fast, convenient and cheap, but at what cost? As farms have become supersized, our environment suffers and so does the quality of our food.

Join us for a film screening of Food for Thought. Food for Life. This movie explains the downsides of current agribusiness practices, and also introduces us to farmers, chefs, researchers, educators, and advocates who are providing solutions. The film is both poetic and practical; its powerful examination of the connections between our planet and our well-being is accompanied by specific strategies that protect both. With an eye towards a sustainable and abundant future, it offers inspiration for communities that are ready to make a difference.

After the film, the audience is invited to discuss how to create a sustainable local food system in DeKalb County with a representative from the DeKalb County Community Gardens.

This movie and discussion are entirely free and open to all; no registration is required.

Location is theĀ  DeKalb Public Library in the Story & Activity Room
