On Saturday, April 28, Evergreen Institute for Wellness is joining other local businesses and organizations to put the spotlight on healthy eating at a “Food & Film Festival” at Kennett High School. This free event runs from 10am to 3pm and offers activities that highlight the important connections
between our food choices and their effects on the health of our bodies, our communities and our planet.
Three films will be screened during the day that address different facets of today’s agriculture and the growing movement toward more local and sustainable food sources. In partnership with Green Mountain Conservation Group, there will be a special showing of the award-winning documentary “Food, Inc.,” a critical look at the nation’s food industry and food supply, worker safety and the environment. It features interviews with such experts as Eric
Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto) and others.
The film “Fresh” by Ana Sofia Joanes celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing the food system. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet. “Sustainable Table” takes an unadulterated
look into the food we eat, and how we can make a difference to our health and the environment by the food choices we make.
In addition to the films, there will be exhibits and demonstrations promoting nutritional awareness and healthy eating habits throughout the day. Some
of the sponsors and participants include the Local Grocer, Good Vibes Organic Coffee, Tamworth Farmers Market, Hannafords, Rafferty’s Restaurant, and many more. Donations to Evergreen are welcome, and a variety of items will be
available for sample and sale.
