On Sunday evening, April 28, First Parish in Needham, 23 Dedham Ave., will host a film screening and a celebration of the “good food” heroes who are creating an alternative to our industrialized food system.
Come at 6:30 p.m. to meet local farmers and Needham Farmers Market organizers, sample delicious local and organic foods, and submit your name for great door prizes. At 7 p.m., after brief updates about local farms, there will be a showing of the 70-minute film “Fresh,” which highlights both urban and rural farmers who are trying to practice sustainable and more humane ways of raising food. www.freshthemovie.com.
Help support our own local-food community while enjoying fresh foods before the film and a lively discussion after. The free event is cosponsored by First Parish’s Green Congregation Committee, the Needham League of Women Voters, Green Needham Collaborative, and the LEAH Collective. Parents please note that the film briefly focuses on industrialized food production, with some images of animal treatment that may be difficult for children to watch.
