Food For Thought, Food For Life: Screening and Q&A at the Jacob Burns Film Center

Food For Thought, Food For Life
We want our food fast, convenient and cheap, but at what cost? Food for Thought, Food for Life explains the downsides of current agribusiness practices, and also introduces us to farmers, chefs, researchers, educators, and advocates who are providing solutions. The film is both poetic and practical; its powerful examination of the connections between our planet and our well-being is accompanied by specific strategies that protect both. With an eye towards a sustainable and abundant future, it offers inspiration for communities that are ready to make a difference. Susan Rockefeller. 2015. 22 m. NR. USA.

Q&A following the screening moderated by Jill Isenbarger, Executive Director of Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture: Fred Kirschenmann, President of the Board of Stone Barns Center and Distinguished Fellow, Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, Iowa State University, will participate in a lively discussion with Lindsey Lusher Shute, Executive Director of the National Young Farmers Coalition, and former Stone Barns farm apprentices Leanna Mulvihill, of the National Farmers Coalition and Four Legs Farm, and Tyler Dennis, of Alewife Farm.
