Coming Attraction:  Food Inc.
Food Inc PosterSeptember 30, 2010 | SMCCC Room 349
Starts 6 p.m. | Click for registration FREE! 
Join us for this unique documentary and post-film discussion.   By exposing the comfortable relationships between business and government, filmmaker Robert Kenner gradually shines light on the dark underbelly of the American food industry. Perhaps if the general public knew how corporations use exploited laws and subsidies to create powerful monopolies, the outrage would be enough to make us think more carefully about the food we put into our bodies.
Come out for popcorn and fun!
