"Food, Inc." Screening at SMC Campus Center
The University of Maryland, Baltimore will hold a screening of “Food, Inc.,” a documentary that “reveals surprising—and often shocking truths” about where our food comes from and how it’s produced on Thursday, Nov. 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Southern Management Corporation Campus Center, Room 351.
Directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Robert Kenner, this 2008 documentary uses reports by Fast Food Nation author Eric Schlosser and The Omnivore’s Dilemma author Michael Pollan to look at the growth of factory farming, lack of federal regulation, amount of processed foods, and the rising rates of chronic disease.
Abby Cocke of the Baltimore Office of Sustainability will lead the post-movie discussion about food security and urban agriculture in Baltimore. Abby Cocke is an environmental planner with the Baltimore Office of Sustainability where she works on urban agriculture, green schools initiatives, and forest conservation. Prior to working for Baltimore City, Cocke managed community greening programs at the Parks & People Foundation.
Dinner provided. Enjoy a low-carbon and locally sourced salad bar from Bon Appétit.
This documentary screening is hosted by the Wellness Hub and UMB Go Green.
