This Thursday 4th December, in another of our film night collaborations with PRSC, we will be showing the documentary movie FED UP at the New Building at PRSC in Jamaica Street (entrance in Hillgrove St.)
Whilst this is a US movie, the issues are every bit as relevant here in the UK.
“Narrated by Katie Couric, Fed Up blows the lid off everything we thought we knew about food and exercise, revealing a 30-year campaign by the food industry aided by the U.S. government to mislead and confuse the American public. Exposing the hidden truths contributing to one of the largest health epidemics in history, the film follows a group of families battling to lead healthier lives and reveals why the conventional wisdom of exercise and eat right is not ringing true for millions of people struggling with diabetes, childhood obesity and other serious conditions. Including captivating interviews with the country’s leading experts, this vital information could change the way we eat forever.”
The evening will start with a short talk by food activists and IEB strategy team members James and Claire (Fox + Monkey). As well as the story behind the movie, they’ll be talking about how our own kitchens and gardens hold the key to our good health.
We will then serve up a delicious and super-nutritious hot supper, cooked with love by James and Claire, which you can feast on while watching the movie.
After the movie, we’ll wrap up with a open discussion led by IEB founder Sara and a chance for everyone to share thoughts about what we’ve just seen and heard.
You will also receive a handout listing information about access to good, affordable food, recipes and courses.
Entry costs £5 (free for under 16s) and includes everything outlined above.
And here it is on Facebook, so you can say whether you’re coming or not. (And we can cook enough food!)
