On January 28, 2010 the Community Food Co-op, the Bozeman Film Festival, MSU Friends of Local Foods, Gallatin Valley Farm to School and The Network of Environmentally Conscious Organizations are partnering to bring Bozeman’s premier showing of the movie Food, Inc. The showing will take place at 7 p.m. at the Emerson Cultural Center. The Emerson Lobby will open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $3 and available starting at 6 p.m.
Beginning at 5:30 p.m., find local organizations and businesses with informational tables in the Lobby. Following the film will be a panel discussion with advocates in the local food movement, including cattle ranchers Jenny Sabo and Wes Henthorne.
These organizations are bringing Food Inc. to Bozeman based on the belief that a strong, sustainable local food system is integral to the health of the individual, the community, the environment and the economy.
Food Inc. is a highly acclaimed documentary that lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry and asks the very important question, “How much do we really know about the food we buy at our local supermarkets and feed to our families?”
In this highly informative, provocative and inspiring movie, filmmaker Robert Kenner delves into our nation’s current food supply, which is largely defined 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.”
This event is also sponsored by the following local community businesses and organizations: Western Sustainability Exchange, BORN, B-Bar Ranch, Montana Best Meats, Stix, Sweet Pea Bakery, Norris Hot Springs, Zone 4 Magazine, Montana Fish Company, Yellowstone Distribution, Outside Bozeman Magazine, Edible Bozeman Magazine, Sola Café, WeeBees, the Montana Organic Association and the Sabo Ranch.
