A quick community service announcement:
The third annual Food For Thought Film Festival will take place in Manhattan the next two Saturdays (April 11 and 18) from 1:00-8:30 p.m. All events are free; come and go as you please.
Four feature-length and three short films will be shown. In addition, there will be featured speakers and post-film discussions.
The goal of the Food For Thought Film Festival is to create public awareness of current food issues in order to promote action within communities for the protection and sustainability of basic human rights, the overall health of communities and the health of the environment.
This year's festival focuses on several crucial issues: access to clean food and water; local and sustainable agriculture; and the effects of policy on small American farmers.
