“Fed Up” Advance Preview Screening

April 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This event is sold out

Join Slow Food, The Curriculum of Cuisine and Whole Foods for an advance screening of the new documentary film Fed Up that opens to the public on May 9.

Fed Up explores why, despite media attention and government policies to combat childhood obesity, generations of kids will now live shorter lives than their parents.

Upending the conventional wisdom of why we gain weight and how to lose it, Fed Up unearths the dirty little secret the food industry doesn’t want you to know — far more of us are sick from what we are eating than anyone has ever realized. The truth is, only 30% of people suffering from diet-related diseases are actually obese; while 70% of us — even those of us who look thin and trim on the outside — are facing the same consequences, fighting the same medical battles as the obese among us.

In riveting interviews with the country’s leading experts, Fed Up lays bare a decades-long misinformation campaign orchestrated by Big Food and aided and abetted by the U.S. Government.
