Food Inc. Documentary opens July 10 at The Esquire

If you missed out on U.C.'s screening of the new Robert Kenner/Eric Schlosser documentary Food, Inc. back in May, there's still time to catch a local screening. The film opens at The Esquire Theatre on July 10. Whole Foods Market will be on hand on opening night with free, organic food samples and coupon books for organic and natural products.

Rated PG 94 min.- This documentary explores how our nation's food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations. These corporate food giants often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but with that we also have new strains of e-coli and heavily processed foods. Starring Eric Schlosser, Joel Salatin, Richard Lobb, Carole Morison and Troy Roush.
