The producers of An Inconvenient Truth are offering a complimentary sneak preview of Food, Inc., their documentary that lifts the veil on our nation's food industry and exposes the underbelly hidden from us with the consent of our government.
Our food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that put profits ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of American farmers, the safety of workers and the future of our environment.
Pesticide Action Network is one of a few social change groups invited by the film's producers to connect movie-goers with opportunities to make a difference after being inspired to act by the film. Because of this, PAN activists and members can see this film for no charge on May 18 in San Francisco at the Landmark Cinema at Embarcadero Center (BART stop: Embarcadero Station). Seats are very limited and require RSVP - we'll be there and hope to see you there with a friend.
Food, Inc. will premier in SF, NY & LA in mid-June. We believe this movie can spark national momentum for real change in the way we grow food.
Anyone who doubts that we must change America's food system needs to see this film. As the producers say, "You'll never look at dinner the same way."
See you at the movies!
