I like the idea of having a movie night at Whole Foods -- or at Wild Oats -- in Santa Fe. A great idea to get community together, and share in knowledge for healthier lifestyles.

I plan on seeing the movie in June. I think people should know what their eating & being better informed. Hopefully, the movie will do great & will get more out there! Thanks, Whole Foods for making a difference, Lori

Hello, One thing I know is that as consumers we need better choices. I am vegetarian and have been for approximately twenty years, so I am careful of what I eat. However, all foods, even vegetarian foods are subject to contamination, and just downright dishonest maneuvers from food companies. So, yes, our rights as consumers for better foods needs to be accepted and acknowledged! Make better foods, or we as consumers will find a better way to feed ourselves! The film is right on!!! Thank you, Khadijah Hawkins

My vegan daughters have brought to my attention many of the issues raised in these provocative films. If we want to seriously address the health issues in this country, often attributed to a diet loaded in salt, sugar, and fat, we must become aware of and refrain from purchasing what is easy, quick, and generally bad for us.

This short is AWESOME, the more we just keep on getting the message out there, the more we touch with information. I have just been changed by all the information, but especially in "Food,Inc." when they are talking to a person working on a cow (it's horrible) and there's a hole in the side of cow, as if nothing is hurting that poor animal. I know that we are turning things around for the better, slowly but surely. Thank you Whole Foods for your generosity, and providing excellent education for all; because knowledge is power! Love you Whole Foods! c xo

It is very interesting the way the movie started as it wants you to believe everything is okay with our food industry and then you get the real deal. Today's food is based on greed, immediate gratification and not on true healthy survival. this movie seems like it will portray the truth about what really goes on and how our animals are actually slaughtered. We need to know the truth in order to change the world and let them know we won't stand for it.

Great movie I suspect that at least one half of all cancers are due to chemicals in our food and water supply. We really need to force our government to clean up this mess. But I suspect that the food industry owns congress. We need to change the laws and get rid of lobbyists. This can only be done with people power, just as we did with health care.

This documentary reminds me of "sweat, tears and chicken" from green channel. Not only animals were suffering, laborers' conditions were harsh and subhuman. Respect the earth and eat locally grown (or home-grown food is vital to our value and sustainability. Thanks for the film!

Food Inc. was an incredible eye opener and I am thrilled to see Fresh The Movie, as well...I'm looking forward to seeing the film here in Manhattan and attending the Food on Film events!

It would be nice if some of these movies were in St. Louis. I have seen No Impact Man and thought it was interesting. My boys (11 and 16) got a kick out of having the whole movie theater to ourselves, and I think they even enjoyed the movie.

I've seen many films and read many books about how the quality of our food is declining. More and more people are speaking up demanding changes to the food we eat. Let's keep spreading the message about increasing food standards!
