We are excited to invite you, your family and friends to our Fall CSA event: a film screening of “King Corn,” a documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. This event is being held in coordination with Food Day, a national day to resolve to make changes in our own diets and to take action to solve food-related problems in our communities at the local, state, and national level.
Date: Monday, October 27
Location: 3B Brooklyn – 136 Lawrence St, Brooklyn
Time: 7:00 – 9:00pm
There will be snacks and beverages provided!
In the film, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America’s most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat—and how we farm.
The event is open to the public, so please invite your family, friends, and networks to this informative and interactive event! We’ll watch the film and have a short discussion afterwards.
