Oct. 9, 7 p.m. @ Salem Public Library's Loucks Auditorium: FOOD CORPS

October's Lecture:
FoodCorps with
Curt Ellis, Co-Founder and Executive Director

Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Salem Public Library Loucks Hall
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

When Curt Ellis left Iowa after creating the Peabody-winning documentary King Corn, something didn't sit right––and it wasn't just the home-brewed high-fructose corn syrup he'd consumed. Join Curt for a lively multimedia presentation as he shares the journey that led him to leave filmmaking and launch FoodCorps: a nationwide "Peace Corps" for healthy and sustainable school food.

A little more about FoodCorps:

Mission:  Through the hands and minds of emerging leaders, FoodCorps strives to give all youth an enduring relationship with healthy food.

We envision a nation of well-nourished children: children who know what healthy food is, how it grows and where it comes from, and who have access to it every day. These children, having grown up in a healthy food environment will learn better, live longer and liberate their generation from diet-related disease.

Join us after the lecture to meet Curt and enjoy some healthy refreshments provided by LifeSource Natural Foods.

* The Lecture Series is free of charge to those attending, however, if you like what you hear, we encourage you to contribute a $5 donation so that we might continue to offer these top-notch presenters on vital issues to our community and world.
