Coming Attraction: Future of Food
Louise Mitchell
October 14, 2010 |
SMCCC Room 351
Featuring Louise Mitchell
Louise Mitchell is the Sustainable Foods Coordinator for Maryland Hospitals for a Healthy Environment. Louise has a diverse background working with non-profit organizations that promote nutrition, integrative and alternative medicine, sustainable farming practices, and environmental issues.
Louise will facilitate an interesting and informative discussion after the showing of "The Future of Food."   The film offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade. From the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada to the fields of Oaxaca, Mexico, this film gives a voice to farmers whose lives and livelihoods have been negatively impacted by this new technology.
