HERE IS THE LINK TO THE EVENT: SAN FRANCISCO PREMIERE OF "THE END OF MEAT," WED. MARCH 21 AT 6 PM, PLUS VEGAN DINNER Enjoy the San Francisco premiere of the ground-breaking German documentary, "The End of Meat." This exciting movie reveals the hidden impact of meat consumption; explores the opportunities and benefits of a shift to a more compassionate diet; and raises critical questions about the future role of animals in our society. In Germany, home of bratwurst and schnitzel, meat is an integral part of the diet. That is, until a few years ago, when perceptions somewhat evolved. Health concerns and meat scandals led to a public debate about the ethical implications of meat consumption and the rise of plant-based diets. Meat producers launched their own vegan products; 100% vegan supermarkets opened; and almost every food manufacturer was adding and labeling vegan options. Is this the beginning of the end of meat? Are we approaching a turning point in the human-animal relationship? In The End of Meat, filmmaker Marc Pierschel embarks on a journey to discover what effect a post-meat world would have on the environment, the animals and ourselves. He meets Esther the Wonder Pig, who became an internet phenomenon; talks to pioneers leading the vegan movement in Germany; visits the first fully vegetarian city in India; witnesses rescued farm animals enjoying their newly found freedom; observes the future food innovators making meat and dairy without the animals, even harvesting “bacon” from the ocean and much more. Along with the movie, enjoy a FABULOUS, full-course vegan dinner planned and presented by an acclaimed Bay Area food professional, Patricia Allen Koot, NE, NC. All vegan, all health-supporting, cooked without oils or added sugars, and all you care to eat! Dinner includes beverages and dessert. Bring a container and take some home with you. And, enjoy healthy but yummy table snacks during the movie. Location is a great venue in the heart of San Francisco, the Opera Plaza Community Room, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco.
