The restaurant industry is a tough one. Providing fresh, quality food, cleaned, prepared and presented well are what we do at Creekside; From Kitchen to Plate, but sourcing the food and supplies is just as important to us. Taking it one step back from Farm is how the farmed products are grown, raised and treated. Movies like Fast Food Nation and Super Size Me showed us how Americans are consuming a lot of crap. An Inconvenient Truth (Al Gore) and How To Avoid A Climate Disaster (Bill Gates) brought to light how agriculture and farming are impacting our climate (the negative effects of methane, nitrogen, CO2 and deforestation for Ag. Mindful Eating will highlight not only health, sustainable alternatives, but bring to light some of the best practices in the ethical treatment of animals, plus the shift to more plant-based alternatives.
Miyoko Schinner of Miyoko’s Creamery and a Founder of Rancho Compasión will be one of keynote speakers. Eating Our Way To Extinction (narrated by Kate Winslet) will be one for the many films featured at this year’s MINDFUL EATING FILM FEST + EXPO. Tickets on Sale > CLICK HERE <
