Food, Inc. Premieres

Food, Inc. calls serious attention to the US food industry.

Tonight, you could head to the movie theater for a lighthearted laugh, but instead, why not opt for a fascinating and educating film about something we all do: eat. Food Inc., produced and directed by Robert Kenner, lifts the veil that’s been hiding the truths of the USDA and FDA, the organizations responsible for how your food gets to your table. The documentary highlights how our nation’s food supply is controlled by only a handful of large corporations, which are solely driven by profit. Featuring industry experts like Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation, and Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto, the film explores issues like our country’s health, factory farming, genetic engineering, the environmental impact of transporting food, foodborne illnesses, and much more.
