"Fresh" Screening and Sustainable Food Teach-in!

In celebration of National Food Day, the Ithaca College Environmental Society (ICES), the Resource and Environmental Management Program (REMP), and Slow Food Ithaca College will be holding a teach-in on sustainable food followed by a screening of the documentary Fresh.

The teach-in will cover various aspects of eating sustainably, including choosing local, organic, vegetarian/vegan, and sustainable carnivorous options. We will be making some delicious examples of these types of foods for your enjoyment!

Fresh celebrates local farmers, advocates, and business people that are working to reinvent our industrial food system and solve its rampant problems, such as pollution, food contamination, and obesity. We will also have snacks during the movie, if all the delicious food we're bringing isn't enough!

Where: Williams 323
When: Monday, October 24, 6-8pm

Free and open to the public; please bring your friends! It's never too late to start thinking about where your food comes from and its impact on you, the environment, and communities around the world.
