Come to the Vinegar Hill Theatre on Wednesday July 29th at 7 pm for a special screening of FRESH. This film is a call to action; its goal is to inspire positive change, and not to scare you, a reminder that you have the power to be in control of your food. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with local representatives from the sustainable food movement so audience members can learn what’s going on in their communities and get involved. In Charlottesville we are lucky to have Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms, Judy Berger of JABA, UVA food systems professor Tanya Denckla Cobb and Ramona Huff of Gryffon’s Aerie. these are some really big names in the local food movement. The point of the film is not only to educate but to bring together farmers, activists, chefs, and policy-makers, all working to create a more healthy, tasty, and sustainable future. Please see the movie, but then start in your own direction to better our food system, and to bring about a healthier tomorrow for us and our planet.
In addition to the screening, Joel Salatin will be signing books at New Dominion Bookstore on the Downtown Mall prior to the screening (starting at 5PM) and the soon-to-open El Camino Restaurant (next door to Vinegar Hill) will be hosting both a pre-and post-screening reception.
Tickets are $15. Available until midday Wednesday online at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/72018, and by cash/check at Feast! in the Main Street Market until midday Wednesday, New Dominion Bookshop on the Downtown Mall until showtime, and at Vinegar after 6PM Wednesday. Advance purchase is recommended.
Proceeds from the screening will benefit Kay’s Kitchen, a local food kitchen that make breakfast available to the homeless, and helps to educate and train them in food service areas.
