FRESH the movie

Fresh_poster_smallYou are invited to attend a special showing of FRESH, a documentary that explores “New thinking about what we’re eating.” This film is not yet available for individual purchase but is being screened throughout the country and we have an opportunity to view this exciting film right here in Southeast Kansas.

Our family was able to preview FRESH and highly recommends that everyone who eats food watch it! This interesting documentary contrasts factory farm thinking with small and medium scale family farms and presents HOPE for a sustainable, healthy food system.

FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food, our planet and how you can help.

Visit the FRESH website for more information and to see more movie trailers.
