#Giveaway Thursday: Ingredients documentary on DVD
Are you a proponent of the local food movement? Or perhaps you'd like to encourage a friend or loved one to eat locally-grown seasonal foods? The documentary Ingredients: The Local Food Movement Takes Root will make a great gift for yourself or someone near and dear to you.
With the world's population recently reaching 7 billion people, it's no secret that change must be made to our already-failing industrialized food system.
Cases of diabetes in our country are rising rapidly among adults and children. Our lifespan is expected to be shorter than past generations. Our overly processed, genetically modified, shipped-from-halfway-around-the-world food is killing us and the environment.
Ingredients seeks to reconnect viewers with their food, where it comes from and the people who grow it by introducing them to chefs and farmers around the nation who are working together to take local, sustainable food from farm to table.
Win a copy of Ingredients by leaving a comment here. I love a good documentary, so let me know about one you've seen - on any topic - and loved. A winner will be picked next Thursday, November 17th. Good luck!
