Film about Food & How It's Grown to be Shown at Center for Environment Facility

Category: Environmental Science, Events


The documentary FRESH, dubbed "a fresh look at food production," will be shown at the Center for the Environment facility on the Catawba College campus at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 28.

The screening, co-sponsored by the Center, Bread Riot and Wild Turkey Farms, offers a positive message about small farms and local food. A panel discussion will follow with Dr. Chris Magryta of Salisbury Pedatrics, Maggie Blackwell of the Salisbury City Council and Bread Riot, Lee Menius of Wild Turkey Farms and Libby Post of Rowan/Salisbury Schools. Bread Riot will prepare a reception.

FRESH is a grassroots effort to grow fresh food and ideas. Filmmaker Ana Sofia Joanes is releasing the movie to small groups to "mimic the food movement in that what's really growing is not different food but a new awareness. You cannot create a new vision or shift of consciousness from the top down," she says. "It must come from ... the bottom up."

The screening and panel discussion are free and open to the public but registration is required. Contact Amanda Lanier at allanier@catawba.edu or (704) 637-4727.
