Why are so many Americans fat?  If you blame fatty foods, large portions or lack of exercise, you may be wrong!  Thursday evening, November 12 SustainFloyd will show the documentary, “FED UP,” which claims everything we’ve been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong.  “FED UP” has been promoted as the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see.

From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of “An Inconvenient Truth”) and director Stephanie Soechtig, “FED UP” may change the way you eat forever. The film will be shown at 7 p.m. at the Floyd Country Store with a healthy soup & salad dinner offered at 6:30 p.m.  A $5 donation at the door for the movie and a $5 donation for the dinner are appreciated.

“Like most of the nation, many of us in Floyd County struggle to keep our weight down,” observes Jackie Crenshaw, President of SustainFloyd and one of the organizers of the 2015 SustainFloyd Fall Film Series. “Why is it so difficult?  This film will help answer that question.”

Following the film, there will be a community discussion with a panel of speakers who will include ???


The final film of the 2015 SustainFloyd Fall Film Series, “The Family Farm” will be shown Thursday evening, December 10.  The Fall Film Series is a fundraiser for SustainFloyd.
