EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ – Come by the East Brunswick Public Library on Monday, Oct. 14, at 7 p.m., for a viewing of Farmageddon, a documentary about one woman’s quest to find healthy food for her family.

Producer Kristin Canty’s film documents her attempt to provide healthy food for her four children. This quest becomes an educational journey to discover why she is denied the freedom to select the foods of her choice from the producer of her choice. The movie tells the story of small, family farmers providing safe, healthy foods to their communities who were forced to stop, often through violent action, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies. The movie succinctly poses and addresses the question “why is this happening in 21st century America?” The film will be followed by a panel discussion and is co-sponsored by the Northeast Organic Farmer’s Association

For more information, please call 732-390-6767 or go to The Library’s website at http://www.ebpl.org and click on “News & Events.” Follow us on Twitter and Facebook: twitter.com/EBLibrary1, facebook.com/eastbrunswicklibraryPage
