Reserve your spot here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/eating-animals-screening-discussion-of-slow-food-and-meat-tickets-55102063756?ref=estw
Join Slow Food East Bay and Transition Berkeley for an evening delving into the prickly questions involved in raising livestock for food.
People eat meat. That is a truth. How we serve those needs and desires determines the welfare of many animals. the health of our planet as well as the health of the eating public. Can a small group of dedicated and passionate ranchers, food policy experts and good eater start a wave change in the agricultural industry toward a more humane & holistic system? How do we encourage people the world over to eat less (and better quality!) meat? Join us in the conversation to try to find answers to these questions and more.
We’ll start at 6pm with a potluck dinner (true to Slow Food USA values of Good Clean and Fair Food) then watch Eating Animals, a documentary supported and produced by Jonathan Safran Foer and Natalie Portman.
**Please note! This film includes graphic scenes of factory farms showing the poor treatment of animals. Please be aware of this when choosing to attend the screening**
After, we’ll have a small panel of local people involved in the good food movement – both plant based and omnivorous – help lead us in a constructive discussion of the film’s ideas. We’re grateful to have Monica Chen of the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition, Monica and Aaron of The Local Butcher, Lucy Norris of Fresh Approach and Loren of Stemple Creek Farm here to share their viewpoints.
Minimum $5 donation at the door to help pay for venue and screening fees, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
