Riverview Community Conversation Series presents: Food, Inc.

Food, Inc.
Sunday, November 28, 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Riverview Community Centre
90 Ashland Ave.

In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on the U.S. food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of the U.S. government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Their nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and the environment. Consumers have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but they also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. North American society is riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.
