A Celebration of Local Food and Community Connections
Saturday, September 14
Media producers Jennifer Bell and Jessica Eden invite you to an evening of Humboldt community food stories on the big screen. The Food for Thought Film project focuses on three topics—the local grain movement, coastal foods and farming, and local tuna fishing. In an increasingly mechanized agribusiness world, healthy food production and consumption plays a role in fostering healthy communities and developing a sense of place. This project celebrates the hardworking people who help make Humboldt the very special place we have all come to love.
As Wendell Berry said, “Eating is an agricultural act” and we are all responsible for our choices and the ripple effect of our actions. Through learning the stories of farmers, ranchers and fishermen, we develop a deeper relationship with our community and our food.
We invite you to join us to watch two of our films:
Going With the Grain celebrates the resurgence of the local grain movement.
Coastal Foods: Sowing the Seeds of Sustainability explores Humboldt’s coastal local food movement.
Doors open 6:30
There will be an opportunity to enjoy foods that were created here in Humboldt county.
Tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets.
