Join Food Conspiracy Co-op, the Community Food Resource Center (of the Community Food Bank) and the Loft Cinema for an opening night celebration of Food, Inc. on Friday, July 17.
The movie, Food Inc., is being touted as one of the most talked about new films about the state of our food system. If you have seen the movie trailer, it’s rather sickening.
The opening night event will include an opportunity to meet local farmers and ranchers, informational exhibits from local food advocates including the Food Conspiracy Co-op, the Community Food Bank and Sustainable Tucson, and a special presentation on local food options in Tucson before the start of the film.
Here’s the schedule for the evening:
6 – 7 p.m. – Local food organizations and farmers available with local food resources and information
7 – 7:30 p.m. – Introduction of Community Food Bank short film Local Foods, Healthy Communities, raffle and recognition of local farmers
7:30 – 9 p.m. – Showing of Food, Inc.
9 – 10 p.m. – Local food organizations available with local food resources and information
This film will most likely sell out, arrive early to ensure a seat.
The Loft Cinema is located at 3233 E Speedway Blvd.
On another note but it’s all tied in, today the Obama administration announced a hearing on restricting antibiotics dosed to livestock . This is all part of the growing demand to eat local, communicate with the farmer, eat healthier, and know where our food supply comes from.
