IN LAWRENCE, KS...
a FREE film showing of

Food, Inc.

... with FREE food and over 50 raffle prizes!

(you can just watch Glee later on Hulu :)

Event details: Robert Kenner's revelatory documentary focuses on the industrialization of food production and how it has affected our health, environment and economy. It's a blistering indictment of giant food conglomerates such as Tyson and Monsanto, and a none-too-comforting look at how the FDA and USDA have been rendered powerless.

Description

Leonardo DiCaprio's great documentary presents the topics of human ecology, environmental destruction and global climate change and how humans have directly and swiftly caused ecological change on a global scale. The films's initial goal is to raise awareness of the issues associated with these topics and their implications for the future, but the larger goal is to show that human's, as a species, can switch their implied role in nature from one that is dominant and hostile to it, to one that is integrated and beneficial to the one and only planet that is known to support life.

FAIR FOOD: FIELD TO TABLE
online...

The Project (in 3 parts)

“Fair Food: Field to Table” is a multimedia presentation promoting a more socially just food system in the U.S. It was created by California Institute for Rural Studies and Rick Nahmias Photography.

Through the stories and voices of farmworkers, growers, businesses and fair food advocates, viewers learn about the harsh realities of farmworker conditions and, more importantly, the promise of improved farm labor practices in American agriculture. The growing movement for “fair food” is tapping into rising consumer demand for food produced in accordance with their values.
