Setting A Food Intention: FRESH Director Ana Sophia Jones Inspires Students and Faculty

 Mary Ellen, Ana, Melissa, Nancy & Ellie

As part of the Eye on Food Film Series hosted by the Urban Food Task Force students and faculty gathered on October 26th for a screening and discussion about the documentary FRESH. 

FRESH celebrates the people across American who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Establishing healthier, sustainable alternatives, our farmers, thinkers and business people offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.

Ana Sophia Jones discussed the daily practice of food and how food is the foundation of our life. She spoke on it's value and our need for honesty, trust, opportunity, and respect.
