Movie Night with SNG – November 1: Food Evolution

Happy Fall, North Grenville! The team at Sustainable North Grenville has been at work, planning the fall and winter events for our community. We will be leading with a movie night to screen the Scott Hamilton Kennedy film “Food Evolution”.  Narrated by Neil DeGrasse Tyson, this documentary film explores “the good, the bad and the ugly of genetic engineering”.

The filmmakers felt that genetically modified organisms (“GMOs”) had become a metaphor for almost every issue we have with food and our food system and decided to explore whether, by better understanding the GMO issues, we could make better decisions about science and technology in general.  More information on the film can be found online at

We will be screening Food Evolution at the Grenville Mutual building on Thursday November 1.  Please aim to arrive by 6:45pm so we can be ready for a 7pm start.  There is no cost to join us.  Donations are discretionary and always welcome to help us cover the licensing costs for screenings like this.  Come watch the film and mingle with others from the community.  We will have some time afterwards for discussion and to share thoughts.
