Actually, it’s a screening of the documentary “Food Fight” (prior to its release nationwide) followed by a panel discussion and a local food tasting.
Here are the details, which I discovered on The Fairfield Green Food Guide.
Date: Thursday, Nov. 5
Time: 7pm – 9pm
Place: Wilton Library, Brubeck Room
Food Fight is a look at how American agricultural policy and food culture developed in the 20th century, and how the California food movement has created a counter-revolution against big agribusiness.
Following the film, director Christopher Taylor will moderate a panel discussion with Bill Duesing, Executive Director of CT NOFA, the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Connecticut, and also organic farmer, environmental artist, and author of Living on the Earth: Eclectic Essays for a Sustainable and Joyful Future; Chef Michel Nischan of The Dressing Room restaurant in Westport, whose nonprofit Wholesome Wave Foundation focuses on local agriculture and access to healthy foods; and Jim Hunter, responsible for developing the garden at Wilton High School, followed by an audience Q&A. And to cap the evening, Chef Michel will provide tastings of locally grown foods.
