February 22nd Movie Viewing

On February 22nd at 6:30 PM, the Creative Activities Club is hosting a movie viewing of the documentary: FRESH!

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 and our planet.

Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma; Missourian Russ Kremer, a pork producer in the Ozarks; and Kansas City supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

The movie runs just over an hour, and was produced and directed by Ana Joanes, a forward-thinking documentary film maker. After the movie, we will have the opportunity to share our thoughts over a cup of coffee. We hope you will join us. To register, please contact Christie Jonas by emailing
