|PurpleCarrotKC.com : American Meat Film Screening|
I hope October is treating you well so far and that pumpkin, apple and soup are becoming a regular part of your diet I know they are in mine! Before I finish my Caffeine Crawl posts, I wanted to stop in and share an event that’s happening THIS Sunday evening that is not one to miss – a screening of film American Meat.
American Meat is a film that Erik and I have been wanting to see since we first saw a trailer for it awhile back. It’s a pro-farmer look at hog, cattle, and chicken production in The United States. Rather than taking sides, it allows farmers’ perspectives to convey the challenges involved in both conventional and sustainable forms of agriculture. Take a look at the above trailer to get an idea of what it will be like!
When: Sunday, October 14th at 7 p.m.
Where: UMKC campus in the Student Union at 5100 Cherry
What: A screening of American Meat followed by a dynamic panel discussion and reception
We’re quite excited about the panel discussion because it will be featuring some of our favorite KC area people and places – local sustainable meat farmer Tom Parker, co-founder of urban farmstead and educational centerBADSEED Brooke Salvaggio, 715 Mass Chef Michael Beard, The Local Pig’s owner Alex Pope with the film director, Graham Meriwether moderating.
Not only that, but word on the street is, there will be a reception afterwards with goodies provided by Local Pig as well. Yes, please!
Who else is going??
