Flatbush Food Film Forum starts on January 27th!

Flatbush Food Film Forum features FRESH on Wednesday, January 27th at 7 PM!

We’re sponsoring this FREE event along with Flatbush Food Co-op, and Ditmas Park West Neighborhood Association. (Big thanks to Prospect Park Temple Isaac for letting us use their space!!)

FRESH is more than just a movie, it’s a gateway to action. Join us this Wednesday and feel inspired by the film’s message and stunning delivery.

FRESH (a film by Ana Sofia Joanes) celebrates the farmers, thinkers, and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system.  Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity.  Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.
