June 9: Free screening of Food, Inc.

Food, Inc., a feature-length documentary by director Robert Kenner, lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing a system controlled by international corporations that prioritize profit over the health and safety of consumers. Join us for a free screening of this important film, with a panel discussion: "What can we do to improve the health of our neighborhoods?"

The Ingredients for Change Campaign includes public screening events of the film Food, Inc. in thirty lower income communities around the country in an effort to raise public awareness of the U.S. food system, and to address issues of food access, childhood obesity, and other diet-related health problems.

Sponored by Black Mommy Circle, East End Food Co-Op, Just Harvest, Penn State Cooperative
Extension, and Pittsburgh Food Policy Council in partnership with Active Voice, Participant Media, Councilman Ricky Burgess, Wilkinsburg Borough Weed and Seed Initiative and Operation Better Block.

6-8 p.m. at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh in Homewood (7101 Hamilton Ave., 15208). Healthy refreshments will be provided by the Ujamaa Collective. Childcare available - RSVP required (RSVP by phone at 412-431-8960 or by email).
