Second Post-Film Panel Discussion with Local Food Providers Added at Red River

[Received this bulletin from Red River Theatres.]

Due to popular demand, Red River Theatres has scheduled a second local food provider post-film panel discussion following the 5:30 p.m. screening of FOOD, INC on Wednesday, August 12.

Panelists include:
Carole Soule, Miles Smith Farm
John Pepper, CEO & Co-Founder, Boloco
Jay Phinizy, Former NH State Representative, Appointed Farm Service Agency Executive Director (starting August 17)
Rep. Tara Sad, Chair, NH House Environment & Agriculture Committee

In FOOD, INC., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that’s been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. FOOD, INC. reveals surprising — and often shocking truths — about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.

FOOD, INC at Red River Theatres is generously sponsored by Miles Smith Farm, a natural beef farm located in Loudon, NH. Regular screenings of FOOD, INC will continue through Thursday, August 13 on the Big Screen and in the Screening Room through Thursday, August 27.

General admission tickets to the film and panel discussion are $10; $8 members. This event will most likely sell out. Please purchase tickets early online at www.redrivertheatres.org, by phone at 224-697 x13 or in person at the Box Office.
