Movie Screening & Meet and Greet
On Wednesday, February 15, 2012, the Dickinson College Sustainable Food Committee, Center for Sustainability Education, and the Environmental Studies Department will come together to present “From Reel to Real Food,” a meet-and-greet and documentary screening for those interested in making changes to our local food system. The event is free and open to the community, bringing together stakeholders such as local restaurateurs, growers, producers, and dining service staff from throughout the community. A screening of the documentary Cafeteria Man will be followed by a discussion of how we can incorporate more local, sustainable food into our food systems and services.
The documentary follows Tony Geraci, a former New Orleans chef and keynote speaker at Dickinson’s Seeding the Future Conference. The film chronicles the various reforms he made on school lunches in the Baltimore public school system, a large urban district serving 83,000 students. For more information on the documentary or to watch the trailer, visit the Cafeteria Man website. The movie will take place in the Holland Union Building Social Hall at 7:00 pm, immediately following a winter Farmers on the Square, farmers market held in The Depot.
Come enjoy the company of others interested in local food, a documentary, and light, locally sourced refreshments. Please RSVP to Rachel Gilbert, Sustainable Food Committee Chair.
