Food, Inc.

Steve and I got around to watching the film Fast Food Nation a few weeks ago. We'd both read investigative journalist Eric Schlosser's book of the same name, which examines the local and global influence of the United States fast food industry.

Now filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on the nation's highly mechanized food industry in the new documentary, Food, Inc.

The University of Cincinnati Department of Environmental Health's Center for Environmental Genetics will host a one-time screening of the film next Thursday, May 21 from 4:30-7 p.m. at Kresge Auditorium.

Admission is free and given on a first-come, first-served basis.
