What are you doing  the evening of July 7th?

What? No plans yet? You do now!

If you live in the Toronto area, you should come to the film screening I am hosting in partnership with the very cute and wonderfully talented guys of The Movement. This is an important movie.

If you are reading this blog, you are probably already aware of the dire state of our food supply and the effects this is having on our own health and on the world around us. For that reason, I am challenging you to not only come to the movie, but to bring someone that may not have a clue about any of this. I know you know someone!

The screening is free of charge and all you have to do is show. A little added bonus is that the restaurant Fresh is in on the goodness and has generously offered 15% off any take-away meals purchased the day of the screening between the hours of 6:00pm and 8:00pm (show them the pass below). So pick up your dinner and join us up the street at the Centre for Social Innovation for the screening.

Here are the details

Tuesday, July 7th
7:30-9:30 pm
Centre for Social Innovation
215 Spadina Ave
Free of charge.

Please print out the below movie pass in order to obtain 15% off at Fresh (Spadina location).

Come get Fresh with me!

    AH, wish I were closer.

    Off topic slightly but how do you substitute agave for granulted sugar in recipes?

    Why did I ever move away from Toronto? Hopefully you will be hosting similar events in the fall when I return!

    Such a wonderful idea though, munching down on a lovely meal from Fresh at the movie Fresh.

    Have fun everyone!

    Is this the same as the Food, Inc. movie that has been showing in the US for a couple of months? It looks similar… lots of the same interviewees… is it just a different title in Canada? I hate it when they do that! So confusing. ;)

    I’m googling around and came to you site and wanted to let you know about a fun and serious low budget film made just over the border (on the other side of Canada)called EATING ALASKA (

    No well lit experts or hidden cameras, but t is instead a wry documentary about choices and dilemmas and an ex-vegetarian who ends up on the Alaskan frontier married to a fisher and hunter and sets off on a quest for the right thing to eat. Slow Food groups, libraries, high schools and community folks from Anchorage to Boston have been setting up screenings with local food potlucks, panels of local experts from beekeepers and ranchers to vegans and journalists. Take a peak at our trailer….

    Welcome ideas for screenings. Keep up the good work.

    If a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, I would use 1/2 cup agave or honey. Most recipes call for too much sugar anyway :) I have never really had a problem with the extra liquid.

    No… It’s a different movie. Slightly different focus- looking more at solutions and less at the evil food monsters.
