Sustainable Cinema Series features “Nourish” Thursday, October 25 at 6:30 pm
Dragonfly Cinema, 822 Bay Street Port Orchard

(Port Orchard) - What is the story of your food? Answers to that question will be discussed as we celebrate National Food Day on October 24. Modeled after Earth Day, this is an opportunity to explore local and seasonal food, healthy diets, sustainable agriculture, access to food, and community gardens. The film “Nourish” is a call to eat more consciously. Practical suggestions are offered for eating in ways that support health, the environment and local economies. “Nourish” is designed to open a meaningful community conversation about food and health especially by choosing locally grown produce.

Hosted and narrated by actress Cameron Diaz, viewers follow the path our food takes from seed to table, depicting a story which often reveals a connection to the global economy, politics and social system. “Nourish” features best-selling author Michael Pollan, sustainable food advocate Anna Lappe, Chef Bryant Terry, pediatrician Dr. Nadine Burke, and organic farmer Nigel Walker. “Nourish” offers a distinctly positive vision of food and community.

The Sustainable Cinema Series offers films to stimulate community discussion about issues we care about. Kitsap County Commissioner Charlotte Garrido sponsors the series, held at the Dragonfly Cinema in downtown Port Orchard at 822 Bay Street. A $5 donation is suggested. The film is appropriate for all ages.
