Slow Food Boston meets March 9th

Reprinted from the folks at Slow Food Boston:
It's Round Two of the Slow Food Boston's Winter Film Series!

Join us next Sunday, March 9th at 4:00PM at the Theodore Parker Church in West Roxbury for an afternoon of 'foodie' documentaries - two short films showcasing ways in which food diversity is being restored and sustained in our world today.

First we'll see Eat at Bill's: Life in the Monterey Market from Lisa Brenneis. This is the uplifting story of market owner Bill Fujimoto's desire to serve his customers well by seeking out and supporting local farmers and producers.

After that, we'll be showing Nick Versteeg's film on the festival of Terra Madre, held yearly in Turin, Italy. Organized and sponsored by Slow Food International, this is an incredible gathering of food communities from around the world, all being brought together in order to work toward establishing a Global Network of Food.

After the films, we are incredibly lucky to have local folks that have attended Terra Madre speaking about their experience and what they brought back home from the gathering.

Cost is $5, payable in advance via check or with cash at the door.

Hope to see you there,

Your friends at SFB HQ
