slowfoodphilly.org, Farm to City and The Rotunda screen “Eating Alabama”
In search of a simpler life, a young couple returns home to Alabama where they set out to eat the way their grandparents did – locally and seasonally. But as they navigate the agro-industrial gastronomical complex, they soon realize that nearly everything about the food system has changed since farmers once populated their family histories. A thoughtful and often funny essay on community, the South and sustainability, “Eating Alabama” is a story about why food matters.
In addition, Fair Food Philly will be on hand to offer a limited product tasting and possible sale of a local fresh crop (harvest dependent)
Admission is FREE
