Movie Night: "King Corn"

Join a great movie night with the showing of the documentary “King Corn”! Whole Foods is putting on this presentation and they will also be providing FREE healthy snacks. Learn about the hidden truths about America's modern food system. The more informed we can become on what goes into producing our food the better off we will be to make educated choices. As the film shows- You are what you eat.

Note: While this film is not directly vegetarian it's a good one to make the connection between where our food comes from.

About the film: Engrossing and eye-opening, KING CORN is a fun and crusading journey into the digestive tract of our fast food nation where one ultra-industrial, pesticide-laden, heavily-subsidized commodity dominates the food pyramid from top to bottom - corn. Fueled by curiosity and a dash of naive, college buddies Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis return to their ancestral home of Greene, Iowa to figure out how a modest kernel conquered America. With the help of some real farmers, oodles of fertilizer and government aid, and some genetically modified seeds, the friends manage to grow one acre of corn. Along the way, they unlock the hilarious absurdities and scary but hidden truths about America's modern food system.

Join in on a night of fun and healthy snacks!

    Would have been nice to have discussion afterwards. It was a little late when it ended though, so maybe not a practical idea for a discussion. I am thankful Whole Foods is offering so many events on eating raw foods and educating the public on the benefits of a whole foods diet.
