Join a community screening of two independent films featuring what is right and what is wrong with the healthfulness of our food supply. Each film documents how certain ingredients differ in nutritional content and the positive and negative health effects of consuming those ingredients. Selected snippets of each film will be shown and a discussion will follow. We hope this screening will educate and inspire the Winchester community to join the local food movement.
InGREEDients. This film uncovers an alarming connection between diet and illness while investigating trans fats and hydrogenated oils in America's food supply. Do you know what a partially hydrogenated oil is? What does “zero grams of trans fat per serving” really mean? Find out in this compelling documentary that takes the audience on a journey through the history of human food consumption from prehistoric times to the present (David Burton, filmmaker).
Ingredients. American food is in a state of crisis. Obesity and diabetes are on the rise, food costs are skyrocketing, family farms are in decline, and our agricultural environment is in jeopardy. This film explores how people around the country are revitalizing the connection between our local community and our health. Discovering better flavor and nutrition, Ingredients reveals the people behind the movement to bring good food back to the table and health back to our communities (Brian Kimmel, producer).
This is the first event in the Winter Lecture Series, 2013, hosted by Winchester Farmers Market.
