In keeping with our 2011 diocesan Race Against Hunger theme, the Diocesan Committee for Social Justice and St. Paul's Outreach Commission are pleased to present a provocative and informative film, FRESH, about the American system of producing food for the market.
The movie 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.
All are invited to attend. Hosted at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 1066 Washington Road in Mt. Lebanon, the evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a light meal featuring local farm products; a donation of $5 is requested to benefit a local food bank. A brief presentation will begin at 7 p.m. by Jim Guffey, Executive Director of South Hills Interfaith Ministries, and the movie will begin at 7:30 (running time is 72 minutes), with discussion to follow. Please join us for this important film! We hope to see you.
