Movie touts benefits of local food

A movie showing in Waynesville is asking folks to think hard about their food choices.

The documentary-style movie “Fresh: New Thinking About What We’re Eating” will be featured at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, in the auditorium of the Waynesville Library. The film focuses on the woes of industrial food and meat production and the remedies provided by local and organic agriculture.

Discussion will continue afterward with Tina Masciarelli from the local food initiative “Buy Haywood,” who will be on hand to answer questions and engage in discussion about the importance of eating locally grown foods.

Popcorn will be provided; participants may bring their own drinks.
