Food For Thought, Food For Life Mon. May 11 at 7:30 pm
We want our food fast, convenient and cheap, but at what cost? Food for Thought, Food for Life 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.  Susan Rockefeller. 2015. 22 m. NR. USA.
