The Food Conspiracy Co-op is excited to offer a free screening of the important food movie Forks Over Knives on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at the University of Arizona’s Gallagher Theater.
Forks Over Knives makes a compelling argument that a diet rich in plant-based proteins will eliminate the threat of heart disease, many cancers, erectile dysfunction, and other ailments. It has been a hit with critics and audiences alike. The Los Angeles Times says it “explains in unflinching detail how we damage ourselves through our eating habits yet insists that it is within our grasp to change course.”
Forks Over Knives made its Tucson debut at The Loft Cinema over the summer. By overwhelming demand its one-week run was extended to three weeks. If you didn’t see it on the big screen over the summer, this is your chance!
The free screening of Forks Over Knives is being offered in conjunction with UA Campus Health as part of a week-long Food Day celebration. Seating is limited to the first 350 people, so plan to arrive a little early. The Gallagher Theater is located in the UA’s Student Union, and the screening starts at 6 p.m.
Food Day is October 24and seeks to bring together Americans from all walks of life — parents, teachers, and students; health professionals, community organizers, and local officials; chefs, school lunch providers, and eaters of all stripes — to push for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way.
On October 24, there will be a panel discussion at the Gallagher Theater at 1:15 p.m. to discuss Forks Over Knives and other food questions. Panel members include Food Conspiracy Marketing and Membership Manager Coley Ward and Joe Abraham, Director of the UA Office of Sustainability. The panel discussion is also free.
