FRESH Film Premiere
FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.

Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen of Growing Power; sustainable farmer, livestock guru and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin; food activist and author of the Omnivore’s Dilemma, Michael Pollan; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

Support local food, support local farmers!
