Two more screenings scheduled for Fresh: New thinking about what we're eating

Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

-Sunday, October 4; 7 pm. The Studio @ 620- 620 First St. South, St. Petersburg.

-Friday, October 16; 7:30 pm. Wings Bookstore- 4500 4th St. North, St. Petersburg.

Just in case you missed the first run showing of Fresh in the Tampa Bay area, you now have two more chances to see this new film about what's wrong with the mega-industrial food industry.

FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.
