Slow Food Film Festival Presents "Food Stamped" at Food Gatherers

Whole Foods Market joins with Food Gatherers and Slow Food Huron Valley to present an evening of film, food, music and friends. Admission is $5. Tickets are available at the door. Seating is limited. All proceeds from the event benefit Slow Food Huron Valley and Food Gatherers.

 

The evening opens with a special performance by artists from Rap For Food (www.rapforfood.org) Rap For Food supports educational programs related to youth gardening, sustainable food systems, and healthy eating through the arts.

 

The performance is followed by a screening of the movie Food Stamped, a humorous but informative documentary film that follows a couple as they attempt to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet on a food stamp budget. Through their adventures they consult with members of U.S. Congress, food justice organizations, nutrition experts, and people living on food stamps to take a deep look at America’s broken food system http://www.foodstamped.com/      Trailer: http://vimeo.com/31749550
