Good Food on Film @ Cinema 21 in PDX

Meet Organic Valley Farmers and See "Good Food" at Cinema 21!

Join Organic Valley Farm Friends for the Portland premiere of "Good Food," this week at Cinema 21!

"Good Food" is a documentary featuring the growing movement of sustainable food and farming in the Pacific Northwest.
Mark Schmid, an Organic Valley dairy farmer from southern Washington, speaks in the film about his decision to go organic and join the Organic Valley cooperative.

Producer Melissa Young says, "The film is an inspiring look at many aspects of creating a more local food system, but the jewels of the production are on-the-ground visits to family farms... the doc looks at what is happening and where we can go, rather than emphasizing the problems with the industrial system." Audience response has been terrific.

Opening night in Portland is TONIGHT May 8th at Cinema 21, with showings until May 14th. All are welcome to attend the screenings and the Q&A sessions that follow. The Schmids will be there tonight (Friday) and participate in the Q&A session.

If you can't make it tonight, catch the film anytime, through next Thursday May 14. Showings are nightly at 7pm, plus a 5pm showing on Saturday and Sunday (May 9 & 10).
