If you haven't seen the movie Food, Inc. yet, we highly recommend it. As conscientious food-lovers, we think the more people who see it, the better. So we're excited to hear that PBS will be broadcasting Food, Inc. next Wednesday, April 21 at 9pm and is encouraging viewers to get together that night, throw a potluck and watch and discuss the film together. Given the food52 community's enthusiasm for potlucking, we thought you all might be interested in taking part. Watch the trailer below and, for more information on hosting your own Food, Inc. potluck, click here.
UPDATE: Here are a few more details on the broadcast and reasons to get involved and throw a potluck viewing party!
- Go to the PBS Food, Inc. webpage between April 22 and May 3rd and tell them about your potluck for a chance to win a gift basket of free stuff (autographed books by Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser, sustainable coffee from Equator Coffees and organic teas from Numi Tea, tote bags, biodegradable wine glasses and more).
- Get potluck-friendly recipe ideas from participating bloggers (including lots from food52!)
- Share this link to POV's free lending library program with any NGO, community-based organization, school or library that might be interested in using Food, Inc. as an educational resource.
