and FedUp Windsor are hosting a film and community discussion on Sunday, August 16th at Mackenzie Hall, 3277 Sandwich.

You may remember we partnered up with FedUp last year for a screening of Food Matters.  It was standing room only as our panel discussed the issues relating to food and the drug industry and engaged the audience in a thought provoking discussion.

This year, we’ll be screening “The Future of Food”.   The film offers a look into the issue of genetically modified foods.   Shot on location in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, The Future of Food examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat as huge multinational corporations seek to control the world’s food system. The film also explores alternatives to large-scale industrial agriculture, placing organic and sustainable agriculture as real solutions to the farm crisis today.

The film screening will be followed by a community discussion with panel guests and is part of FedUp’s Summer Harvest Festival August 15th-August 16.
