How much do we really know about the food we buy at our local supermarkets and serve to our families? In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner points his lens at our nation’s food industry. Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Michael Pollan (The Omnivore’s Dilemma) along with forward thinking social entrepreneurs like Stonyfield Farm’s Gary Hirshberg and Polyface Farms’ Joel Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprising — and often shocking truths — about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.
Followed by a post-film panel of local food aficionados:
Kathy Gunst, chef and author
Rachel Forrest, journalist and food critic
Sara Zoe Patterson, founder of Seacoast Eat Local
Garen Heller, owner of Back River Farm in Dover
