Slow Food USA, Slow Food Phoenix and Good Food Finder are proud to partner and screen two brief documentaries focusing on addressing inequities and reclaiming food freedom in Arizona and beyond.
The films — “Food as Medicine” and “Addressing Inequity In Arizona’s Local Food System” — provide a snapshot into the food justice movement that is not only happening in Arizona but across the country. Meet the next generation of farmers, healers, and ranchers who have entered the space to create a more localized food system that provides healthy, fresh, culturally appropriate food to their communities and are fighting to eliminate decades of food injustice.
Following the two fifteen-minute screenings, there will be a discussion with film producers and those featured in each documentary.
This Slow Food Live event is produced by Slow Food USA and Good Food Finder, a project of Local First AZ. Generous support of this program comes from The Global Futures Lab: Food Sovereignty and Global Syndemic Project and the Environmental Humanities Initiative, based at Arizona State University.
