Sierra Club screening "Fresh"

Screening of Fresh

Wednesday, October 13, 7-9 p.m.
Chapel Hill Public Library (100 Library Dr.; directions)

We've learned a lot about what's wrong with the American food system--fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides made out of fossil fuels, polluted water, poisoned produce, and don't even mention processed foods loaded with fat and sugar. Fresh is an up-beat look at how we can grow and distribute food that's better for human heath and the health of the planet. NYU nutrition professor Marion Nestle says "It's a must see for everyone who eats." Please join us for a screening and discussion. (Official movie website.)
