I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something I loved from my childhood. Something that could never, ever possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft.

Good Food film screening on 10/22

October 17th, 2008 at 12:58 am | No Comments | Posted by Wendi Dunlap

Good Food, a film about sustainable food and farming in the Pacific Northwest, will be screened on Wednesday, October 22, 7:00 pm, at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center on 3515 South Alaska Street. There will be food donation barrels for the Rainier Valley Food Bank; non-perishable food items for the barrels are requested. The screening is free and open to the public, and the filmmakers will attend.

Parts of Good Food were filmed locally, including parts at the Columbia City Farmers Market, Marra Farm, and the food bank at South Park Neighborhood Center, and an interview with Beacon Hill resident Jodie Vice. The film was shown at the Seattle International Film Festival this year, and they described it as follows:

“This lively tour of various Washington state farms and ranches that have adopted healthier organic methods in raising their products offers several lucid arguments in favor of smaller, more efficient farms, and purchasing locally grown crops. Still, none are as convincing as the marvelous bounty laid before our eyes in this film.”
