Food Inc., Thursday, October 7, 7 p.m.

Posted on September 20th, 2010 by

The Nicollet County Historical Society, St. Peter Community and Family Education, St. Peter Food Co-op, Arts Center of Saint Peter, St. Peter Senior Center, St. Peter Public Library, and St. Peter Recreation Department have teamed up to bring you another documentary film series–Films on First Thursdays. Some films are serious, some are amazing, and a few are just plain weird. Food Inc. will be shown in the Senior Center Room of the St. Peter Community Center on Thursday, October 7 at 7 p.m.

About “Food, Inc.”: We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults. “Food, Inc.” reveals surprising—and often shocking truths—about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here. 91 minutes, PG.
