Food Justice Film Series at O Cinema
|Still from Forks Over Knives.|
The cinema is about to rock the socks off the food world again with the premiere of a food-conscious film series à la Slow Food on Film -- a first around town. All films will focus on the importance of food justice and responsible eating.
Hosted by Youth L.E.A.D. and sponsored by Slow Food Miami and Raw One, the three-month series will kicks off this Thursday with the acclaimed film Forks Over Knives. Created by Erin Healy, Youth L.E.A.D. aims to raise awareness of the city's main food issues and provide everyone with access to healthful food.
Here's the full schedule:
Thursday, September 14, at 7 p.m.
Forks Over Knives
Tasting and wine reception sponsored by Raw One, 6 to 7 p.m.
Saturday, October 22, at 1: p.m.
What's on Your Plate?
The feature coincides with National Food Day, a national convergence for food justice. Like TEDxManhattan's Changing the Way We Eat, various cities throughout the country will simultaneously work toward better food. To celebrate, Urban Oasis Projects' Farmer's Market and local food truck Mac N Cheese will be on-site.
Tuesday, November 8, at 7 p.m.
Wine reception, 6 to 7 p.m.
