Tomorrow night there’s a special screening of Food, Inc. at the Mercy Corps’ Action Center to End World Hunger in Battery Park. Food, Inc., an Academy Award shortlisted film, reveals surprising and often shocking truths about what we eat, how it’s produced, who we have become as a nation and where we are going from here.

The event is co-presented by the Action Center and the Interfaith Experience committee, a group of 20- and 30-somethings that organizes lectures by contemporary artists, thinkers and leaders who provide insights on the role of faith in the creative and intellectual process. This season’s theme is: “Food and Faith.”

The screening will take place Thursday, January 28th. At 6:30 p.m., Dhrumil Purohit, Chief Community Organizer behind We Like It Raw, the most popular online raw food community, will discuss how food and faith relate from a Jain perspective. Please arrive early to grab a seat and chat with others interested in faith and food. The movie begins at 7:00. All proceeds will be shared between the Temple of Understanding and the Action Center to End World Hunger.

WHEN: January 28 at 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: The Action Center to End World Hunger, 6 River Terrace, Battery Park City

This movie is really incredible. We rented it and watched it three times, twice because we were sharing it with others. It’s a really incredible movie that makes you think really hard about what you are eating. For our house, it was really life-changing, along with a couple of books we’ve read lately.
