GOOD FOOD, Wednesday, October 22, 7 p.m. Rainier Valley Cultural Center, 3515 South Alaska Street
We will have food donation barrels for the Rainier Valley Food Bank at the film showing. Please bring non-perishable food items for the barrels.
Bring your friends and neighbors to see Good Food about sustainable food and farming in the Pacific Northwest. A small part of Good Food was filmed at the Columbia City Farmers Market, and also Marra Farm and the food bank at South Park Neighborhood Center. This film was first shown in June to packed audiences at the Seattle International Film Festival. Since then it has been shown at the Seattle City Council, in university courses, and at local theaters, with many more screenings scheduled.
Food, where it comes from, how it is grown, how healthy it is, and what it costs is becoming more important for everyone, and Good Food introduces us to the local farmers and ranchers, stores and restaurants that are building a more sustainable, healthy food system. For decades small family farmers have been disappearing, but there is new life in the fields, orchards and pastures of the Pacific Northwest.
The film screening is sponsored by the Columbia City Farmers Market, Sustainable South Seattle, Rainier Valley Cultural Center, Tutta Bella, City of Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, and Moving Images. The filmmakers will attend. The event is free and open to the public with donations welcome.
