"Food, Inc." movie screening and discussion

A free screening of the documentary "Food, Inc.," a feature-length documentary by director Robert Kenner, will be held from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 29 at 1306 Guadalupe St.

According to www.foodincmovie.com, the film "lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing a system controlled by international corporations that prioritize profit over the health and safety of consumers."

Free food provided by Food Not Bombs.
 
Following the screening, there will be an open discussion about food policy in San Antonio and how to access fresh food in the community.

Discussions will include experts, according to the Facebook event, in:
  • food policy
  • treatment of animals
  • worker rights
  • privatization of nature
  • loss of culture
  • health and illnesses

This event is sponsored by Food Not Bombs, Peoples Power Coalition and Southwest Workers Union in partnership with Active Voice and Participant Media as part of the Ingredients for Change Campaign.

The Ingredients for Change Campaign includes public screening events of the film Food, Inc. in thirty lower income communities around the country in an effort to raise public awareness of the U.S. food system, and to address issues of food access, childhood obesity and other diet-related health problems.
