SUSTAINABLE TABLE: what's on your plate?
Presented by Grant Williams
from Transition East Bay
This evening begins with a potluck supper before the film at 6:30 pm. Bring your favorite food!
Here's a documentary that takes an unadulterated look into American food. Over nine months time, the producer and director of the film, Mischa Hedges, traveled the west coast to learn more about our food system. He found that the standard methods of producing food do not take environmental or human health costs into consideration. He also explored the many alternatives to our current agricultural system, known as agribusiness. There are many questions about the sustainability of our agribusiness practices. This film tries to find some of the answers to problems that we face today and will face tomorrow. What’s on your plate? Where did it come from? What effects does it have on the environment and your body? What can you do to help make a difference?
Grant will facilitate a discussion after the film showing.
Wheelchair accessible around the corner at 411 28th Street
Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our organic, vegetarian refreshments
