Farmland Screening To Benefit Food Bank
Did you know that less than one percent of the 317 million people living in the United States are farmers? It’s no wonder so many of us have questions about the foods we eat and the people who raise and grow it.
Even in North Carolina, a state where agriculture and agribusiness is the largest segment of the economy, most of us are several generations removed from the farm. That’s why award-winning director James Moll set out across America to film his documentary, Farmland. This unique film chronicles the lives and stories of six young farm families, and provides a rare glimpse into the future of farming. It screens at the Carolina Theatre on Thursday, June 12.
If you love food, you owe it to yourself to learn more about the farmers that make it their life’s work to feed you. Join us on June 12 for this eye-opening film. We believe, at least in some small measure, you’ll walk away feeling a bit more connected to the farmers that feed us.
MIX101.5- FM (WRAL) will be broadcasting live from the Farmland screening event, and $5 from every ticket sold will help benefit the Food Bank of Central & Eastern N.C. In a time when safe, affordable foods are so abundant, it’s hard to believe nearly one in six Americans are struggling with hunger.
