On Sunday, February 12, 2017, GardenShare and the Potsdam Food Co-op will host a free film, followed by discussion with local experts, at the Unitarian-Universalist Church in Canton. The program starts at 4:00 PM. "In Defense of Food" is based on Michael Pollan's book, The Omnivore's Dilemma.
Popcorn and soda spritzers supplied by the Potsdam Food Co-op will be available.
The documentary will be followed by an informal discussion with food experts from the St. Lawrence County community on the local food movement. Information on ways you can get involved with food system and anti-hunger initiatives locally will be available. This event is free to the public and everyone is welcome to attend!
In Defense of Food tackles a question more and more people around the world have been asking: What should I eat to be healthy? Celebrated US author and lecturer, Michael Pollan distills a career's worth of reporting into a prescription for reversing the damage being done to people's health by today's industrially driven Western diet. In Defense of Food debunks the daily media barrage of conflicting claims about nutrition. Traveling the globe and exploring the supermarket aisles to illustrate the principles of his bestselling "eater's manifesto," Pollan explores how the modern diet has been making us sick and what we can do to change it.
There is no admission charge and no pre-registration required.
