TTKD October Meeting - 'The Future of Food'

The upcoming Transition Kenmore meeting is a movie night:

"The Future of Food" is an in-depth investigation into unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled US grocery stores for the last decade. From Canada, across the US and into Mexico, this film gives farmers, whose lives and livelihoods have been negatively impacted by the new technology, a voice. The health implications, ecological damage, government policies and push towards globalisation and monopolisation all play a part in this story, and are the reasons why many people are alarmed about the introduction of genetically altered plants into both the environment and the food supply. The Future of Food effectively explains how genetically modified organisms are being cleverly crafted as the response to the coming global food crisis, in effect marketing GM food as the second 'green revolution'. It clearly and simply explains the forces that have already changed what is eaten in the US, and how Australia's food supply could potentially become part of this politically and economically driven movement. This film also explores organic and sustainable agri-food solutions as a real and very possible solution to feeding the world's people".
