The Napa County Library will offer a free screening of the popular documentary “Food, Inc.,” which describes the current state of American agriculture and food supply on Jan. 17 at the Napa Main Library, 580 Coombs St.
The documentary, directed by Robert Kenner, explores a broad range of issues tied to food supply in the United States, including animal treatment, slaughterhouse conditions and practices on factory farms.
According to its promotional website, “Food, Inc.” aims to lift “the veil on our nation's food industry, exposing how our nation's food supply is now 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 our own environment.”
The screening, which includes light refreshments, will begin at 6:30 p.m. For more information, contact John Thill at the Napa Main Library at 707-259-8395, or visit the Library’s website at napalibrary.org.
The film is part of the Library’s year long focus on the theme “Eat, Move, Read.” Watch for upcoming programs throughout 2013.
