This my locavores is a must see…..a good step in supporting local!

This is my second post about this documentary and after seeing it my emotional reaction confirmed the importance of  my blog…to share what I feel is important with my community….good whole food & how to find it, I am one small effort to support local and this film is the reason why.

Mark your calendars & take a friend to the beautiful restored  State Theater in Modesto. Food, Inc. is a powerful documentary that will affect the way you eat no doubt, or at least plant a seed in that direction.

The film runs August 14 – August 22…..if you see it, we want some feed back here!
