Farmageddon Screening: You Are What You Eat

CTbites Team

Westport Farmers Market rolls out the green carpet for its exclusive screening event - Farmageddon - on November 18 at 7.30pm in downtown Westport, at the new Christ & Holy Trinity church building.

The Westport Farmers Market had the idea to bring the film Farmageddon to Fairfield County. Little did they know they would be able to assemble this all-star group to work together to share this documentary with the community. The goal is to create a fun and educational evening filled with local food, wine and friends. This is not a fundraiser for any organization just one way The Westport Farmers' Market is hoping to give back to the community. So please join them on November 18 at 7:30 for the Fairfield County premier of Farmageddon.

Filmmaker Kristin Canty’s quest to find healthy food for her four children turned into an educational journey to discover why access to these foods was being threatened. Farmageddon highlights the urgency of food freedom, encouraging farmers and consumers alike to take action to preserve individuals’ rights to access food of their choice and farmers’ rights to produce these foods safely and free from unreasonably burdensome regulations.

Farmageddon is presented by the Westport Cinema Initiative and Westport Farmers Market and sponsored by Whole Foods Market. The screening will take place on Friday, November 18th at 7:30pm at Christ and the Holy Trinity Church on 75 Church Lane in Westport.   A Q&A session will follow the screening.  Tickets are $10 and available for purchase at http://westportcinema.org/.
