In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment.
Rural Resources, Tusculum College, and Christ United Methodist Church
invite you to join us for
Food Movie Night and Rain Barrel Silent Auction
Thursday, February 2nd at Christ United Methodist Church, 307 South Main, Greeneville. We will show Ingredients, a documentary by Robert Bates that explores the local foods movement and its origins, including interviews with farmers, politicians, and locavore champions like Alice Waters and Peter Hoffman.
The rain barrels for auction are hand-painted by students at Tusculum College. Each one features a recreation of a well-known work of art, rendered in bright weather-ready paint--set to move from the event straight into your garden. All proceeds benefit Rural Resources.
A local foods dinner kicks off the evening at 5:30pm, $10 adults/$4 children and students with ID. The movie and auction are FREE and start at 6:15pm. Please RSVP for dinner, so we can be sure to have enough food. Childcare provided, with fun food-themed activities to keep your young ones busy while you enjoy yourself!
