  Screening of Documentary Film "American Meat"  
(Movie/Film)

You and everyone at Virginia Tech are invited to a film-screening event.

Don't miss an upcoming screening of documentary film American Meat at 300 Cowgill Hall, Architecture Building on December 4, 2012. American Meat is a pro-farmer look at cattle, hog, and chicken production in the U.S. This is a great opportunity, as the film is coming through Friends of the Farmers Market specifically to be screened for our community!

The event is FREE and open to the public. The first 150 attendees will receive a card for one free burrito from Chipotle Mexican Grill!

Following the film, there will be a panel discussion including the film's director Graham Meriwether, and local farmer Phil Mosser of Shadowchase Farm.

The film examines our current industrial meat system not though hidden cameras but through the eyes of the farmers who live and work in its feedlots and confinement feeding operations. The documentary then depicts the burgeoning sustainable, local-food movement made up of farmers, food advocates, chefs and everyday folks who are changing everything about the way meat reaches the American table. The film exposes challenges relevant to both conventional and alternative meat production. Three core actionable principles guide the nationwide Young Farmers Screening Series: thank America's farmers; support young farmers; and food choices matter.

Join us for this important and fun event, and spread the word!
