I was lucky enough to be able to attend the sold-out screening of FRESH last night at the Riverview Theater in Minneapolis. Awesome event, and so inspiring. The movie was so optimistic — it made it seem like a regional food economy is really possible.
When I first started caring about this stuff over 10 years ago in college, it was always through the framework of animal rights. But it has become so much more than that, and it needed to if it was ever going to go mainstream. Having a healthy regional food economy is now about EVERYTHING. Human rights, the environment, our urban and rural economies, our health, and yes, animal welfare.
I highly recommend this movie.
