Join us for this FREE screening and discussion of FED UP!

Fed Up shows how the first dietary guidelines issued by the U.S. government 30 years ago overlooked the role of dietary sugar in increasing risks of obesity, diabetes, and associated ill-health outcomes, particularly in children. Since these guidelines effectively condoned the unlimited addition of sugar to foods consumed by children, sugar consumption has greatly increased, obesity has skyrocketed, and generations of children have grown up far fatter than their parents. The film concludes with a list of 20 companies, industry groups and politicians who refused to talk to the filmmakers. Official website: fedupmovie.com (http://fedupmovie.com/).

The movie is 92 minutes long and will be followed by a discussion.

Wholesome Financial Partners (http://wholesomefinancial.com/), a financial planning company, generously offered us the use of their space as their way to support local community empowerment.

There is free parking in the strip center or street.

Please come on time for the screening.

The film discussion will follow the screening.

Please invite your friends! However, the space is limited - RSVP is required.
