Quad Cities Chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local and Progressive Action for the Common Good-Local Foods Initiative will sponsor a showing of the movie FRESH, new thinking about what we are eating, a film by ana Sofia joanes, Friday September 18th.

FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, a 2008 MacArthur's "Genius Award" fellow; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan's book, the Omnivore's Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, who is creating a new market model for our family farmers. FRESH's focus on these inspiring individuals and their initiatives around the US provides the audience with actionable solutions. FRESH is a call to action.

"We need to celebrate and support our local food supply. FRESH inspires folks to join the local food movement and gives them hope that we can realize our goal of a safe, sustainable, local food supply," Caroline Vernon, Progressive Action for the Common Good-Local Foods Initiative.
