Montclair’s office of Environmental Affairs and Community Green will screen their Green Film Series movie, "At the Fork" on Thursday, November 16, 6:30 p.m. at the Montclair Public Library, 50 South Fullerton, Montclair, 07042.
In observance of the beginning of our holiday season of family feasts, this critically acclaimed new farming documentary takes an honest look at the way animals are raised for food, diving into the impacts of our choices when we sit down to eat. Caring about animals, caring about where our food comes from, and caring about how food is produced is part of a larger shift in our society.
Filmmaker and omnivore John Papola and his vegetarian wife Lisa offer up a timely and refreshingly unbiased look at how farm animals are raised for our consumption. With unprecedented access to large-scale conventional farms, “At the Fork” asks the tough questions behind every hamburger, wing, and glass of milk. What he discovers are not heartless industrialists, but America’s farmers – real people who, along with him, are grappling with the moral dimensions of producing animals for mass food consumption.
Bring a friend, neighbor, or your family chef to this free screening. For further questions, contact the office of Environmental Affairs at 973-509-5721, or, firstname.lastname@example.org.
