"Food Fight" film & film maker on 12/8

Los Angeles film maker Chris Taylor will be joining the Puget Sound community for a screening and discussion of his most recent film "Food Fight." This documentary takes a fascinating 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.

Vashon Island farmers Jasper and Will Forrester will be joining the discussion, as well as emeritus professor Dr. David Balaam.

This event is sponsored by IPE, ASUPS, Comparative Sociology, Environmental Policy and Decision Making, and Office of Spirituality, Service, and Social Justice.

When: December 8th, 5:30-8:30 PM
Where: University of Puget Sound, 175 Thompson Hall
Cost: FREE!

I am really looking forward to meeting all the interested students at UPS on Tuesday. Please come and bring a friend--I am looking forward to meeting Jasper and Will Forrester and Professor Balaam as well. The Q&A should be very interesting afterwards.

Many thanks,
Chris Taylor
