Raising The Bar On Eating Locally...Don't Miss FRESH

Analiese Paik


Analiese Paik is the Founder and Editor of The Fairfield Green Food Guide. She is devoted to raising awareness for eating locally and incorporating sustainable food into your family's daily routine. Analiese organized a sold out screening of the documentary FRESH last August. If you missed it, on February 27th, you have a second chance to see this film. Details are below: 

You are invited to a very special screening of the documentary food film FRESH on Saturday, February 27 from 2:00-4:30 pm at Audubon Greenwich. Immediately following the film, a panel of prominent members of the local/sustainable food movement will discuss the critical role we each play in supporting local farms and creating a local market for sustainable products and offer practical ideas about small but important steps we can take to join and strengthen this grass roots movement. Please join us afterwards for complimentary organic wine and local cheese in the exhibition area. A special educational program for children ages 5 and up is being offered free of charge so the whole family can enjoy an afternoon at the beautiful venue.

ABOUT THE MOVIE: Local, organic and sustainable food movements are gaining ground across our country.  FRESH provides a vivid glimpse into our nation's broken food system and celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system and working for change. Come out and learn about the policies that are responsible for our current food system and see what we need to change so we can all access food that sustains our health, our farmers, and our planet.

ABOUT THE PANEL: The panelists will include: Amy Kalafa, co-producer of the 'Two Angry Moms' movie; Rachel Khanna, an organic chef and Certified Health Counselor; Dan Levinson, founder and Chairman of Westport Green Village Initiative(GVI); Deb Marsden, founder of CT Farm Fresh Express; and Melina Brown, a chicken expert and founder of the Southern CT/Westchester Backyard Poultry Meetup. Analiese Paik, a sustainable foods advocate and founder of the Fairfield Green Food Guide, will moderate the panel discussion.
