New Meetup: "Dinner & A Movie" Potluck on Monday, April 26 at Wussow Chiropractic

From: David
Sent on: Monday, April 5, 2010 12:02 AM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Madison Raw Food Meetup Group!

What: "Dinner & A Movie" Potluck on Monday, April 26 at Wussow Chiropractic

When: Monday, April 26, 2010 from 5:30 until 9:00 PM

Where: Wussow Chiropractic at 8434 Old Sauk Road in Middleton

We will again be enjoying the use of the space at Wussow Chiropractic for our fourth "Dinner & A Movie" Film Night & Raw Potluck on Monday, April 26, from 5:30 until 9 PM.

This time we will be screening the film ?Food, Inc.? with Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser.

Please RSVP as you normally would via this Meetup description. Depending on the combined response of both groups, we may need to limit the number of those who RSVP and attend. Currently we will have up to 20 spots available for our group, with 10 available for Dr. Brian's group. There will be an automatic waiting list set up for those who RSVP after the initial 20 who respond. If closer to the time we see that we will be able to accommodate more attendees from our group, then we will raise the number of those who can RSVP. Check back here on the description for this Meetup for the latest details regarding these limitations to group size.

I also ask that everyone be very conscientious about their RSVP'ing. If you have planned to come but find that you won't be able to join us after all, please update your RSVP accordingly, so that others who may be on the waiting list will be able to join us.

This again will be an outreach opportunity for our group to interact with those from Dr. Brian?s group who may be interested in exploring the world of raw foods. I would suggest bringing either regular raw potluck fare and/or raw movie snacks. His clients who join us will be encouraged to bring healthy snacks, but they may not necessarily be raw.

Here is more information about ?Food, Inc.?

Running time: 94 minutes

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eKYyD14d_0

The Food, Inc. website: http://www.foodincmovie.com/

Synopsis: Documentary filmmaker Robert Kenner uses reports by Fast Food Nation author Eric Schlosser and The Omnivore's Dilemma author Michael Pollan as a springboard to exploring where the food we purchase at the grocery store really comes from, and what it means for the health of future generations. By exposing the comfortable relationships between business and government, Kenner gradually shines light on the dark underbelly of the American food industry. The USDA and FDA are supposed to protect the public, so why is it that both government regulatory agencies have been complicit in allowing corporations to put profit ahead of consumer health, the American farmer, worker safety, and even the environment? As chicken breasts get bigger and tomatoes are genetically engineered not to go bad, 73,000 Americans fall ill from powerful new strains of E. coli every year, obesity levels are skyrocketing, and adult diabetes has reached epidemic proportions. Perhaps if the general public knew how corporations use exploited laws and subsidies to create powerful monopolies, the outrage would be enough to make us think more carefully about the food we put into our bodies. (Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide)

And now for the potluck details:

Location:

Wussow Chiropractic
8434 Old Sauk Road
Middleton, WI 53562

Contact information:

Office: (608)[masked]
http://www.wussowchiropractic.com/

Driving Directions:

Exit the Beltline at Old Sauk Road and head West towards the the shopping center with the Walgreens and Wild Birds Unlimited. Approximately .2 miles down the road, just past the lights at the intersection of Junction Road and Old Sauk Road, you will see Wussow Chiropractic on the right in the building with Chipotle and Cousin's Subs.

Parking information:

Free parking is conveniently located directly in front of the office.

Otherwise our usual potluck guidelines will apply:

First off, we very much want to welcome our new members and those curious about the raw and living foods lifestyle. We encourage you to bring something very simple - some fresh, organic seasonal fruit, some cut up organic veggies, or some raw trail mix you can put together, for example. (If you need more ideas, contact David by using the ?email me? link on the left side of web page.) More information for newcomers to our group can be found here:

http://www.meetup.com/The-Madison-Raw-Food-Meetup-Group/messages/boards/thread/7663889

For each person attending bring one dish with at least eight servings to share, along with the appropriate serving utensils. One can reasonably expect this to cost somewhere around $15.00.

Please bring all of your own silverware, dishes, and cups that you will be using.

Please use organic ingredients whenever possible to prepare your dish, for increased nutrition, elimination of pesticides and genetically modified foods, and most importantly for your body and for the planet!

If dehydrating or warming your food, please do so at or below 105 degrees to ensure that the enzymes of the food remain intact and active.

Bring a copy of your recipe to place by your dish, so that others can copy it if they like what they tasted, and also so they can be able to make informed choices, should they not want to eat certain ingredients due to sensitivities or other personal reasons (such as nuts or Bragg's Liquid, for example). We will then post a message on the Madison Raw Food Meetup website where everyone can respond to and add their recipes for each particular potluck to share them with others.

At the end of previous potlucks we often exchange our leftovers. Bring some extra containers if you want to join in on the fun.

Voluntary donations towards the costs of using our Meetup web presence ($144 annually) are greatly appreciated. It was suggested by our members that we should consider donating a dollar or two every potluck, which would quickly help us meet our costs.

See you there!

David
