On April 3, the Mission Hill Health Movement is showing (in Mission Hill, at 1534 Tremont Street) a 90-minute color movie about American agriculture called "King Korn" (2008).

The film shows how corn is grown as a “commodity crop” and where it goes – to feed lots and into processed foods as cornsyrup and more.

Free "healthy snacks" include:
blueberry juice, apples and tangerines, popcorn, etc.).
The location is

The Flynn Kitchen at

Boston, MA 02115

Starting time is 6:00 pm (for food, networking, fund, socializing), but the film begins BY 6:30 pm (please do NOT show up AFTER the film starts!).

Learn about how American agriculture results in much "fast food" and how the "background agriculture" looks, and why both human health, animals, and the physical health of the land on our continent are so negatively affected.
