Default Food, Inc. on PBS, 4/21

I've been MIA from 3FC for a long while now, but I just heard this and I thought people in this forum might be interested.

The movie Food, Inc. is going to be aired on PBS on Wednesday, April 21st at 9pm ET.

Here's a preview: http://video.pbs.org/video/1402965302/

I've never seen it, so I've added it to my calendar!

I saw it and plan to teach the discussion guide. It was quite good.

This movie was awesome! It changed so much for me and what I eat now. I still have a ways to go, but I think a lot more now about what I do.

i just watched this film, it is amazing! I recommend it to everyone!

I'm about to watch The World According to Monsanto as well. I've already started it and it is perfect for a follow up to Food, Inc. and its online for free (its streaming by the way, which means no downloads):http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...83407501596844

Just a heads up, check your local listings. Not all PBS stations will air this at the same time or day.

Thank you so much for sharing this! I've been wanting to see it for some time and really hope my local PBS station will carry it.

I wanted to see this but I am going to be driving all night (12 hour drive) so I'll miss it. Maybe the Library will have it soon. Or...maybe I'll remember to see when it's on here and DVR it.

great movie! really got me thinking more and more about what I eat. It's scary how little control and information we really have over our food source. This really needs to be the next big movement. I definitely think it will be!

It's on tonight where I live. Wow, it is incredibly disturbing. I mean, I knew most of this stuff (I've been a strict vegetarian for 17 years and now only consume wild Alaskan salmon) but seeing it...EWWWWWWWW...

Yikes.
