Lake Tahoe school to present ‘Food, Inc.’

TAHOE, Calif. – Green Team speaker series presents “Food, Inc.” a film by Robert Kenner, 6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 12, Lake Tahoe School. Free and open to the Community. “Food, Inc.” lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that’s been hidden from the American consumer. Our nation’s food supply is controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and the environment. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults. Featuring interviews with such experts as Eric Schlosser, Michael Pollan and social entrepreneurs Gary Hirschberg and Joe Salatin, Food, Inc. reveals surprising and often shocking truths about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation, and where we are going from here.
