What’s on Your Plate?

Yesterday, the library and Chipotle hosted a screening of the documentary film What’s On Your Plate?.  In the film, two friends investigate where the food they eat comes from. The answers aren’t always appetizing.  There are still places where you can find good, fresh food, such as local farmers markets.

7:30am-1:00pm
