“Fresh” Movie Night @ FIT

4 Feb

Join us on Friday, March 5, 2010 @ 530p for a FREE screening of “FRESH”. We are located at 600 Fremont Ave, Los Altos, CA 94024.

FILM SUMMARY (provided by Ripple Effect Films)

This film, created 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.

Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur’s 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan’s book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma; and a supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

If you’d like to attend our screening, please email analisa@focusedtrainers.com to RSVP.  Film trailer

The screening is FREE.  Please note that any donations received will go towards purchasing fresh produce and nuts from our partner CSA Farm Fresh to You and donated to one of our local elementary schools as healthier snacks.  Thank you for your attendance and support!
