Event Details

When we walk into a supermarket, we assume we have the widest possible choice of healthy foods.  But in fact, over the course of the 20th Century our food system has been co-opted by corporate forces whose interests do not lie in providing the public with fresh, healthy and sustainably-produced food.

Fortunately for America, an alternative emerged from the counter culture of California in the late 1960's and early 1970s where a group of political anti-corporate protestors - led by Alice Waters - voiced their dissent by creating a food chain outside of the conventional system. The unintended result was the birth of a vital local sustainable organic food movement which has brought back taste and and variety to our tables.

FOOD FIGHT is a fascinating look at how American agriculture policy and food culture developed in the 20th Century and how the California food movement has created a counter-revolution against big agribusiness.
