In conjunction with Eat Local First DC's week-long celebration (July 14 - July 21), The Big Bad Woof, Inc. partners with BusBoys and Poets to screen FRESH, an enlightening documentary outlining the vicious cycle of our current food production methods while celebrating the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are reinventing our food system.
After the screening, join the conversation with an exciting panel of local food revolutionaries to discuss issues raised in FRESH and the various ways to support local farmers, sustainable farming practices and eat fresh, local foods.
