Food Day 2012 with Film Screening, Wednesday Oct 24th 2012



The Arroyo Food Co-op invites its members and supporters to celebrate Food Day 2012 with a screening of the movie “Fresh”.

Wednesday, October 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the Altadena Public Library, 600 E. Mariposa Street in Altadena.

The event is free, and there will be samples of local food and drink.

Directed by Ana Sofia Joanes, “Fresh” is an underground documentary that explores sustainable agriculture and depicts the farmers, activists, and entrepreneurs who are reinventing America’s food systems. Featured in the film are Joel Salatin, Will Allen, Michael Pollan, and George Naylor.

Prior to the screening, representatives from Pasadena and Altadena organizations who are working toward the goals celebrated by Food Day will be in attendance to provide resources, information, and brief presentations on their work prior to the screening. Participating groups will include: Muir Ranch, Altadena Farmer’s Market, Fair Trade Pasadena, Culture Club, and the Pasadena Department of Public Health.

Food Day is an annual nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. The priorities of Food Day are to promote safer, healthier diets; support sustainable and organic farms; reduce hunger; reform factory farms to protect the environment, and support fair working conditions for food and farm workers. Its ultimate goal is to strengthen and unify the food movement in order to improve our nation’s food policies.

Please join us for this screening and to celebrate Food Day.

Special thanks to our hosts, the Friends of the Altadena Library.
