On Monday, October 18 at 7 p.m., we will present a special screening of Food, Inc.
This Oscar-nominated documentary film lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry. A controversial film, “Food, Inc.” explains how 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 own environment. We have bigger, better, longer lasting food, but the consequences may often outweigh the benefits.
"Food, Inc. Is hard to shake, because days after you've seen it, you may find yourself eating something -- a cookie, a piece of poultry, cereal out of the box, a perfectly round waxen tomato -- and you'll realize that you have virtually no idea what it actually is."-- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly"
Essential viewing" -- Gary Goldstein, The Los Angeles Times
