Real Food Film Nights

Tuesday 4th,  August, 6.30pm
Friends of the Earth, 312 Smith Street, Collingwood

Food Films – Popcorn – Hot Soup – Fresh Bread

It's time to reconnect with our food and the planet over some hot soup and some wonderful new films on food issues.  Discuss the latest updates on new and old food  campaigns, plus you'll be given the opportunity to take some action of your own through letter writing, petitions, postcards and maybe a visit to the supermarket or a bit of local digging!

‘Fresh’ celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people who are re-inventing our food system. Progressing from the industrial model, food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity to forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet. 

Supporting films: Guerrilla Gardening - Edible City preview - Backwards Hamburger

Entry by donation. Fresh hot veggie soup, bread & popcorn by donation.
Seating is limited and RSVP is preferred.  Email pritchardmartin@yahoo.com
