Food Inc. - A Spy Benefit for Colchester Farm

The Chestertown Spy will be presenting the highly acclaimed documentary film, Food Inc, as a benefit event to support our local Colchester Farm CSA on September 24, 2009 at 7:30 PM at the Prince Theatre in Chestertown, MD.  

Colchester is a community-based organization that grows pesticide-free vegetables, provides wholesome food, and offers education on sustainable agriculture to its members and surrounding communities. It strives to be an alternative model of farming, dedicated to maintaining the agricultural heritage of the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

In Food, Inc., filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government's regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our 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 our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.

A brief video presentation about the CSA will be shown before the film. After the viewing, a panel discussion, moderated by Spy Green Editor Marty Fujita, will follow to answer questions, and discuss local resources and concerns.
