If you are interested in learning about the local food movement, meeting the people who are bringing local foods to your table and seeing how you can join the growing number of people demanding good taste and healthy nutrients in their food, come see the movie, FRESH, this Tuesday evening, March 9th, at the Ambler Theater.
FRESH offers a positive look at how farmers, thinkers and business people across America are re-inventing our food system to forge healthier, sustainable alternatives to agri-business. To help attendees learn more about where to obtain local food in our area, sponsors will be on hand before the movie with information about buying and using local food.
Sponsors include Weaver’s Way, a local food co-op; two local community-supported agriculture farms, Hazon at Kol Ami and Pennypack Farm; Lancaster Farm Fresh, a buying club that brings fresh food directly from the farmers to our area; Fair Food, an organization dedicated to bringing locally grown food into the Philadelphia marketplace; PASA, the Pennsylvania Sustainable Agricultural Association that works to promote sustainability throughout PA; and Marc Brown-Gold, an award-winning local chef who will offer ideas on great ways to cook with local foods; and many other local organizations.
The movie will be followed by a panel of experts who will delve into the topics raised in the movie, answer questions, and offer insight on things that you can do to immediately make a difference. Panelists include chef Marc Brown-Gold; Ann Karlan, executive director of Fair Food; Amy Crystal from Lancaster Farm Fresh; Marilyn Anthony, PASA SE regional director; and Pennypack Farm farmers.
