Healthy Food: Issues and Alternatives
Public Forum on Friday, April 19, 7:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Center
(located at 319 South University—former Art Reach Center, one block south of the city library)
Do you have questions or concerns about the nature and quality of – the meats and fresh produce available through our traditional grocery store networks?
Have you considered trying to find reliable alternatives to those grocery store networks?
This Public Forum will offer information and potential answers.
Food, Inc., a highly praised, widely-seen documentary will be shown. It is an eye-opening exposé of the modern food industry. It explores where the food we purchase in the grocery store really comes from, and what it means for the health of future generations. It is both fascinating and terrifying, and is essential viewing for every health-conscious citizen.
“It might change your life.” 0. The Oprah Magazine.
A group of people long involved in providing local food sources will discuss some of the alternatives and will answer any questions. These include:
Chris Swier of the Swier Family Farm CSA (Community Supported Agriculture—providing weekly shares of farm produce)
A representative of the Green Tree Co-op, discussing sources of a variety of local organic and free-range meats.
The primary objective of the evening is to provide concrete, practical answers for ourselves and our families. If you have questions, please contact Jim Dealing at 772-0269.
