Jefferson Healthcare Hosts the Second Movable Feast of Films
The Food Coop is teaming up with Local 2020 (Citizens for Local Food, the food resiliency action group of Local 2020) to sponsor the Moveable Feast of Films: 12 movies about FOOD that will sprout all over Jefferson County. The movies are FREE.
Jefferson Healthcare will host the second of the Movable Feast of Films on January 27, 2014 at the Dirksen Auditorium for two showings at noon and at 5:30 pm. We will be showing Jamie Oliver's TED Talk: Teach Every Child About Food, with short: Anna Lappe's: Food Mythbusters: The Myth of Choice and How Junk-Food Marketers Target our Kids.
Speakers will include Dr. Joe Mattern, Jefferson Healthcare’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. David Engle, Superintendent of Port Townsend School District and Jefferson Healthcare’s Executive Chef Arran Stark.
Attendees are welcome to get their lunch at the Jefferson Healthcare Café for the noon showing. We will provide healthy snacks for the evening showing. Donations are welcome and will go to the Jefferson Healthcare Foundation.
New food information is exploding and with it, consumer demand for healthier food options, better labeling practices, and fresher, locally grown food. This is all as it should be. These movies will cover a wide variety of food related topics such as the obesity epidemic in the US, what we can do about that and how to encourage healthy eating habits. Yet, how most of us eat is quite habit bound. So, how do we make changes in such long standing habits especially where our sense of pleasure is reinforced with every delicious, but perhaps not so healthy bite? Information helps. Discussion helps. Support helps. Access to better choices helps. Hopefully, this film series will make all this more possible.
